You guys are great - but then speedboats and Miami Vice go together like Crockett and Tubbs.
Thanks so much for all the help - hopefully we'll be able to get in contact with one of the owners and get a boat to the Convention.

As there are definitely a lot of Vice fans here - if you want any information about the 20th Anniversary Convention, check out our website at http://www.members.shaw.ca/mvconv04/ . We'd love to have you come and join in the celebration.

what about the chris craft stinger ? They coming too ?

If you know of any in or around Miami, let me know how we can can get in touch with the owner and I'll talk to our sponsors to see if they'd be interested in putting it on display as well at the Best of Miami Vice Party on Friday night at The hard Rock Cafe.

I have a MV 38kv:

Quote:
I saw this one on the web some time ago and it was located in the Great Lakes region. Don't know the individual or a contact, but he was restoring the boat to all original spec. He did not have the hatch or arch installed at time of photo. Sorry if this does not help, but a point in the direction.
Minx20, that was my boat. I am in Texas. This photo was taken last year before I had the arch fabricated.

Wished I could bring her down to Florida but presently she is under major retrofit. I am installing a pair of 950 hp Twin Turboed 525s, updating to Konrad Outdrives and modifying the hull to incorporate a pad bottom among other things. I am hoping to have her back in the water come February 05.

Sure would have liked having her (and me) there at the convention.

Incidentally, my boats name is "My Only Vice"

Good Luck!

Duane

One of the original MV boats is in Germany.

Miami Vice Scarab

They wanted 85k USD back in 2000. It had only 90 hours on the engines. All original and papers certifying it was one of the boats used in the show.

I don't know if they still have it.

FREE What is the shape of the PAD you'r putting on ?? how are you blending it in?? I've looked at the way Reggie runs a strake afew inches up from the "V" and blends that into a PAD with a small step { 1/2" or so ] and then continues it on to the stern. I've thought about that for my boat [26' w/ Lg S/B;ASD6] Also thought about running the 2nd strake down from the chine all the way to the stern,maybe blending in abit of extra width on that strake like lots of the newer hulls seem to have for some added lift. thanks AWsr

Actually, it is only the last 8 inches from the transom inward that I am putting the pad on, hoping it will substitute as a standoff box somewhat, keeping the props in the water when coming out of the hole. My props were blowing out and it took forever to get it up on plane. I am also looking at incorporating some water intake tunnels into the bottom of the hull similar to what Derebery did to his b'yond reason.
