Rebar,

Is this the one that has been around the lake forever and is really cammed
up and loud? If it is, I sure did not realize it was so rough in it's present condition. It does need a good owner then.

Also, is the diesel Cig that was owned by the same person up for sale? I think it had 3208 cats with TR drives...??? If I remember, it is kind of a
dog but looks good and rides good.

Thats the one. The boats were bought new at the Flordia Boat show. Their 41' Attack (Come on America) is for sale as well @ 89K.

Built like a tank, minor cracked bulkheads and ribs over the years. Is it staggered or side by side? Will take a lot of power to see any real speed.
Sounds like one we checked out around that time in Lauderdale Had Staggered 454's and mercury race pipes on it.

I have the same boat here in southern California, a 36' built in early 1978.

Keep in mind that in addition to the ultra-sturdy construction (estimated weight 12000 pounds) the beam is 9'3" so with TRS drives and 1200hp I have only seen a best of 65 mph on gps. To its credit, despite it being 26 years old it is still rock solid and the design handles big water with ease.

So, unless you want it as a sort of classic, used exclusively as a lake boat I'd imagine it could leave you wanting more speed and less bulk.

I believe the 40' Super Hawaii is a stretched version of that hull. Buzzi basicly did what MBam is doing then added a swimplatform.

Nice job Marc, any current pics?

I hate to admit this, but I have not touched it in almost 2 years, life got in the way. Built a pool, been remodeling the house, moved the business. Starting to think about it again.

I was going to ask you if you have blown all the dust off of it yet, but figured I would let you fess up.

I was at the shop one day and seen it sitting there.
