My best friend had a 91 31 IMP he purchased new. These hulls give an amazing rough water ride. Project is awesome. Good luck!

sweeeet looking boat you got there! only thing is how will the suede hold up to the water and weather?

Thank You :) The bolsters are made with Alcantara so it will work fine with water. The only downside is that when it rains they get soaked :) But i have also a set of custom made vinyl covers for when it’s really bad weather :)

Here are some fun pictures and (maybe correct) info that Iíve heard from the previous owners in Finland and Sweden :)

From when the boat was used as a race boat, it was called Cheap Thrills and the driver and team was:
CHEAP THRILLS OFFSHORE RACING TEAM
Ray "Grabber" Grabowski
Steve Fussell
Rich Schieferstein

And this is a picture from when it was a Finnish team who raced with it :)

We couldn’t find any vents that looked good so we made our own with some help from a good friend of mine Jon Palmqvist who designed them.

The "home made" vents :)

I had some problems with the measurements from the blueprint for the headers. It wasn’t exactly the same when we finally received the headers :)

So the easiest way to make it work was to modify the heads exhaust ports. :)

On these pictures I got enough clearance :)
