Default Tempest Hulls, Thoughts of Opinions?

Found a race program from a Chesapeake Bay race held in the early 90's and it had a picture of "Rare Breed" a "C" class boat from Jersey. This jogged my memory about a hull I saw laying in a boatel, also in Jersey that was suppossed to be a Tempest also. It was a conventional bottom but very straight and nice sharp chines. Anyone know about these boats.

The boat is a "pop" of a 32' Scorpion, built by spcorpion powerboats of miaimi. The deck is an original. A company called Avance' also popped the same boat.. those mold then became "navigator". The Hull was then strecked to 37' and that is the base bottom for the Active Thunder 37.

The scorpion was pulled from a 32 viper built by Futura Marine in 1979. I still race one in the North East called Wazzup. The Viper is the original hull. Awsome handling boat, have had ours over 100 mph Ed

Popping is a favourite pastime in Miami and elsewhere, right TODD

The Scorpion was not popped from the Viper...we bought the molds outright in 1982.

Wrong Curtis...

Randy Sosa, Armando Rivera and Myself went to NJ and bought the molds...and shipped them down personally... sorry to debate...but... The original line consisted of

21' Streched 19 seabird
24' Molds we bought from Humberto Picon at Carerra
32' Old Viper molds
38' Old Phantom molds(before the company was called seahawk)

I sold the 21's and the 24's to a group in Houston
the 32's and the 38's are with Felix at Condor

OK, so you say it wasn't popped, that the molds were purchased, all I know is that they are identical, i stand corrected. And what do you mean be WE? Were you partners with them? Do you have a boat building background?
