In the mid 70's there was a 28 Barron Raceboat called "Baby" , anyone else remember it?

Thanks for the replies. Phil, I'll email you. These boats are narrow. Look like they'd cut through some pretty good waves. Seems like it could really be a pretty interesting project boat to restore.

The gentleman that owns the marina where we keep our TG in the summer in Ocean City, MD has 2 - 28's and I believe a 20'. Beautiful, beautiful, boats.

ScottB - Let me know if you got the shot. Email me at [email protected] and I'll send it to you if you didn't.

I'm going to do a little checking and see if there is any chance of picking up this hull if its for sale. Hull seems in good shape and solid (transom is THICK!). There are no engines, or interior. Anybody have thoughts on what it might be worth? It sure looks like it might be a great solid ride with some new power and updates. I'm also curious to see if this particular hull has any of the race history that some of the others obviously do.

Thanks again for all the input!

Default Re: Tell me about the Bertram Barron

Sorry to jump in this thread so late. I just joined this forum today. I also own a 28' Bertram Baron, hull number 14 (white/red). The boat is technically 7'6 inches wide I beleive and is 30 feet with the outdrives. Ours has been repowered with twin LT1 Chevy's putting out around a combined 750-800hp. I am planning on redoing everything (fiberglass, paint, chrome, engines, electricals) on the boat after this season and would be much appreciated of any info that can be provided. Up until this thread I knew of only 5 left in the world. 4 in NH, 1 in France.
