Tito, are you saying it didnt? or are you playing some trivia here?

in any event i am to young to remember the races but I do remember it did win the top speed title for a while

plus when i was 12 or maybe it was 13 they let me get in the cockpit for a pic, so naturally they were winners in my book

Bill Farmer of Excalibur built the 32 I still have the literature on the boats. He had a lot of celebs that had his boats. Frank Borman had a 32 and Circus Circus had one of the 38 or 39 footers.The boats had a notch and a pad. Excalibur also sold the 32 hull to Chris Craft for thier 32. I own a 27 and it also has the notch and pad.

The real reason for the beak is Reggie wanted to use the name 10 meter (33 ft) . The boat wasnt long enough so they cut the front of the mold and spread it with a wedge until the lenth was 33 ft. The shape it took is the beak you see today. All the other reasons you hear is just sales bs.

CB I have to lacate the box it is in. My wife put it in storage and over the winter I need to go through the papers and get rid of some old literature from my business. I will find them and get you a copy of it. Forrest
