There are a few of them around. They were a very good rough water boat. 25 degree V and I believe the same heritage as Sonic. I don't think any have been built since the mid to late 80s. At least I haven't seen any new than that.
A guy here on OSO has or had one, his name is bearpaw.

You are right, It looks rough. How long was it under water?

The info I got was a 3-4 years on the bottom the depth was aprox 150 feet.

They said it was a insurance fraud.

Ok so this hull is now a sonic??
