5300 pounds and built like a brick house. Ran 85 with the "A" motor. Originally built to qualify for and run the Worlds in KW. Too bad the Worlds were run on a circle track in Galveston Bay that year. Looks like someone has been in the rigging, the transom area looks pretty untidy. Other than that, it looks like the day I sold it (less power). As for the exhaust, I had originally set the engine on a rail system that allowed me to change the CG on the boat in about 45 minutes. The exhaust running side by side made the swap easier and allowed me to bridle the two pipes together for support. It also put the exhaust at the highest point on the transom and farther away from the waterline.

I'm like lowblue320, that's one of my favorites of all time. Hopefully somebody normal will pick them up and do them justice.
