I guess I shoudn't given the hint......

Yes Brownie, you are correct except for the year. But very close....


In October 1967 Lazy Days participated in the Miami-to-Nassau Ocean Powerboat Race. The 50' luxury houseboat was equipped with three air-conditioners, walnut paneling, wall-to-wall carpeting, a well stocked refreshment center and even an icemaker. Despite some problems with their engines, the houseboat averaged 20 mph during the 184 mile race. After the race, the Race committee performed a thorough inspection, concluded that there was no damage to the houseboat and awarded an "Ocean-Tested" seal of approval by the Bahamas Powerboat Association. Lazy Days is still the only houseboat manufacturer to have received this award.

My houseboat had this award attached to the helm...

Hell, I won the race that year! We are both right. They also ran in the 500 (and finished) the following year.

Damn!
No wonder why you knew the answer...
This is what the bow area looked like:

On mine it had a solid piece of 1/4 inch aluminum running down the center just forward of the first full bulkhead which also had watertight access points on each side. This was in case of blowing a hole through the bow if it were to hit something and the boat would not sink.

What ever happened to the maelstrom mold? That boat was ahead of its time with the wide beam.
