Do a little searching here on OSO. Lots of history. You my want to talk with Cashbrain, I think he MAY have some info on it.

Here's what I can tell you (from the seller)...
"Speedmaster 3a drives, United Racing engines (you would have to call TNT rigging they did the boat in case you want to know who made the cam for whatever reason) 3 man standup bolster, gafrig gauges, crashbox shifter. K tabs (30 inches long) current speed 80 to 90. 8500lbs three axle race trailer by torino. Everything is fine. Orignally raced by cigarette, then al copeland(Popeyes), then a drug dealer in florida, then me. you can look at the boat at 8898 Florida in Baton rouge."

The boat is incredibly ugly (bubble-deck and paint) and has a little "history". The pictures hide the deck pretty well so it's hard to see. If I lived in the area, I'd check it out, but I'm sure as hell not going to fly down there to see it. To many people have passed it up. It's been on ebay about 500 times. Even when it meets the reserve, the buyer always backs out (???) and is considered a deadbeat buyer. Sounds to me like the boat is worth more in parts. Proceed with caution!!!

This boat was the original Popeyes V Bottom. I believe.

It raced in the SBI Worlds in New Orleans last year.

Ugly ass hull.
