Question anyone know this Cafe Racer

Does anybody know any history on this boat, it came from the Annapolis, MD area? Trying to find out what original power was and what it last had. Any info would be helpful.
Thanks, Tommy

Looks like Walt Disney thru-up on it!
Kidding looks nice I have a twin under mine also it's rated to #12K check the rating on twin axle trailers.

Tommy,

cbdragon would have a pretty good idea how many cafes were built with a blower hatch...personally, i thought they were an "owner add-on" piece, as this is only the 2nd one I have seen with blower hatch.

Does it not have power in it now? I haven't seen that exact paint design on a Cafe before.

cbdragon would tell you everything about it.

Is it for sale?
No Power?
What year?

You'll eat up a lot less tires with two axels as compared to three...that's for sure.

Looks like the one that was at Pleasure Cove marina a few years back. Had "big" motors, but know one knew for sure what that meant ... thought maybe 575's. If it's the same one it had some of the worst glass work I've seen, really wavy sides.

it came from the annapolis area when i bought it. it sat for a few years and then went to auction. i understand it did have big power but the glass work is fine, the hull seems to solid and in good shape. i was hoping to find the original owner to find out what it had from the factory. i heard it might have originally been in Conn.
