Default Loved this one !!

About to go out early morning, when Tampa Bay was calm.
Did about 38mph, had 2 18/08 woven roven and 1 layer of mat
next to gel coat, had a plastic tank behind seat. Had a 25hp short
shaft. My friend in West Palm has it now.

Allisons?

sure.
They came in flatbottom 13' and 14'. Then came padvee 13,14,15,and 17.

The 13s usually ran with 50s the 14s usually ran with V4's but a few ran inline 6 mercs. 15'ers almost always ran inline 6 mercs and I know of two that ran T2X's here in middle TN. 17'ers were hotrod inlines and t2's.

A buddy dragraced a 14'er with an F2000 V6 Merc. Wasn't a good dragboat but was a dang fun playboat. One drag run out of 5 was straight enough to stay in the gas thru the whole 1/4.

Allison currently makes a 20' hotrod. Paul Allison built all the little clrcle track boats. His son Darren/Darius/D-something makes the bassboats and the different variants of the 20' rocket.

thespy, I guess you already know this but there is a picture and small story of your boat (38') in the book muscle boats, published in 1988. It says greg chu from ny bought it off the floor of the 87 ny boat show and was the first tg to be equipped with mercruiser 420 setup. Pretty cool.

I love that book, I tell all my friends I am a centerfold. I had about 50 hours on the boat then. I have had the boat since new. I only have one mini left, its yellow and lighter than the others, but I saving that one for a rainey day project.

Greg that's awesome that you have had your boat since new and that it still looks like it did in 87. What power does it have now? in the book it says hawk racing team on the side.
