Default My new Larry Smith 38

I just picked this up. Been looking for 2 years and found nothing but basket cases until this one. Needs a few things but they are all small fixes.

Ran it twice so far and does 80mph at 4200rpm cruise. Not sure of top end yet.

Details:
1989 Larry Smith 38'
All kevlar, never a race boat.
Bobby Moore rigged.
Twin Staggered 705ci All aluminum Donovan's, Naturally aspirated. 10:1 compression.
750hp on pump gas
Speedmaster #5's with Huber 1450 trans.
102mph (not confirmed yet)
Six pack cockpit. No cabin.

I am VERY stoked right now.

Jody

Great looking boat. You must be psyched to have looked so long and found such a cherry boat!!!

Jody165,
Sweet boat!! That's my buddy Tim's 42' Fountain (Reggies old Ohio Steel) in the background.
I live in Carlsbad also. Are you going to take it out this weekend for the thunderboat rcaes in Mission bay?? If so, look for the Fountain (Never satisfied) in the picture and a 38 TS Top Gun (Smokin' Gun), I'll be on the Cig.....see you there or around.
