Yep...my slip is ...oh..a few hundred yards from that last photo. We have a great performance boat bunch here locally and a club forum here on OSO. Check in on the forum or PM when you're gonna be up this way...some of us will meet up with you show you around some? We know the River real well (there's another 2000 islands just underwater!). I have only studied one Sutphen up close...a late model 39' that was at my marina on brokerage for a short time. Canadian boat, N/A 750's and six drives... I believe it belonged to the fella with the "Real McCoy" Sutphen, well known on the northern poker run cicuit. Understood at that time he had 3 ? Sutphens. Admittedly the boat was short on luxury...all business...but looked and "pounded out" tough as nails. Don't know if he ever sold it? The price seemed fair, I remember we were commenting on the value of the drivetrains being a substantial % of the price being asked.

Cool photo Fred!! I have a bunch of pictures of my old Sutphen that I would like to post...but they were taken before I had a digital camera. I'll scan them and post away!! It was a 1972 18 footer with a 340 Mopar and a Volvo drive.

I got to meet Richie, Sr. at the Worlds in 99 or 00?? They had the pit right next to us. They had that awsome F2 boat that was the kilo holder at the time!! I was in our pit and this guy walks up and says "Who's the Undertaker?" (We had a sticker on the boat) He went on to introduce himself and his wife, I guess his family use to be in the Funeral Business in the Northeast, I seem to remember it started with his grandfather and at the time they were making their own casket's and being good at working with wood they also started to make boat's!! And that is how it all got started!! (Kinda cool if you ask me!!) I guess some of his family is still in the business. I'll have to look for a picture of me and him!!! Him and his wife were GREAT people!!!! Super nice!!!!

There's a boat wake there that you don't see. It was not just a bad trim job. In case anyone was wondering how I could get that much air from those ripples. NK

Too Old,
Feel free to add this to your collection. I believe this boat was from N.J. I really wanted to buy this boat but the broker that was listing it was reluctant to put me in contact with the owner for obvious reasons. If anyone knows where this boat is please chime in.
