You are right R.L. I was thinking humbly of watching El Boss blow by us in Lauderdale. The fastest 2 stroke was the 35 wooden cougar Bill S. put together for Big Al with the eight powerheads 2.0 mercs mounted sideways with blower belts to a shaft going to M.C. drives. 138.512 mph straightaway record set in New Orleans in I think 1984.

Copelands record was eiter in 1985 or 1987 I know his first race in the boat was Treasure Cay in the Bahamas in 1986. Jesse James won that race but was penalized for a techncality.

I belive that boat became Power Broker / BoatHouse and then Fast Boats.com it came apart in Miami a few years ago but was fixed. Rob had it for awhile as a pleasure boat and sold it as a pleasure boat. it origanally belonde to Alex Ramos when it raced back as Loco Motion.

Doug My boat was a inline 2 seat canopied kevlar boat. I do not have any pictures from before we modified it but it had a tail from the back of the canopy to the transom. Jack at hydra in N.J. has the mold for the canopy he pulled from my boat. When first built it had a 1/4'' sheet of aluminum laminated in the deck. It still has the water deflecting bulkhead just forward of the cockpit As far as that boat in your picture, it looks like it is going to the moon.

Love it Again, does it still have that light blue paint job. T2x holds the answer to your question. I believe it was one of his Shadow Cats.

Send T2x an email and ask him nicely for information. Or try George Linder. He could probably help with information as well.
