Yeah, if you can get past the green, Ghost Runner looks very well kept.

I can do side by side or staggered engines. Race or pleasure setup. Mercruiser 6's are a must, as is exceptionally clean throughout.
Thanks, Ed

I don't think my buddy did the motors that blew. He told me about it though. Not a good scene.
He does mostly machine work, and builds motors too.
Todd Mashmeier is his name from KC.

does todd do a lot of work on race cars??? the story i heard was that kevin decided not to go with his normal egine builder which was Competition Marine from STL to build the new motors, instead he had a guy from KC do it. he only got 4 hrs out of the the motors built by the guy from KC. that came from a pretty reliable source..... maybe if kevin is lurking, he will chime in?

Competition Marine were the original builders of my motors also.....

I have a bew builder now!

P.S. Ghost Runner is also one my all time favorites. I really like that 45' Apache. Not so much the paint scheme, but definitely the cockpit layout!!!

OBNOXUS21: Thanks for the compliment on our 45 and I must say that I agree about the graphics. Thank goodness they are all vinyl. Some days I think that the design is way too busy and other days it is OK. I have considered peeling it all off and going plain white until I can get it painted. I am just worried about what is underneath the vinyl and how badly the exposed white has faded. It would suck to remove all that vinyl only to see all of the lines. We'll experiment with it over the winter. Here is a quick Photo Shop hack job to see what it would look like plain white.

This is the only picture I have that shows the full cockpit. It has eight bolsters in three rows. Two bolsters in the front, four in the middle and two in the rear. The rear two bolsters can be covered up with an insert to make a larger sun pad.
