Default 91 Scarab Cv

Hey everyone I have a 1991 Scarab CV 26ft w the bowtie 454 block - looking for any and all information on the history / production of these boats. I saw in an old ad one had a rear wing on it, has anyone ever seen one with a wing on it? Any type of information is great, thank you.

Great rough water boats for the size. I have 3 of them over the years. Built 1990-1991. Never seen a wing. One of mine had the performance hatch option that was really cool. Easy engine access.

Thanks for the reply, i don't see many of the cv's around and hardly ever come across one for sale. I know they were only made about a year and a half and wonder if it was in very minimal nembers...
Is the performance hatch you are talking about the fiberglass dual ram air engine cover?

Anyone know where I can get one?
Had one back in the 90's, but sold it for a 30 Spectre in 98.
Got married and sold that in 2000 and now the wife is interested in getting another boat, and I would like one of these... Again!

Thanks in advance!
Bill

Is this the one? The boat looks very nice in the ad.

P.S. There's a fellow Kyle Miller who's restoring his second 26 CV and probably knows these boats better than most. Check out his threads here on OSO:

Good friend of mine has one, it's an impressive rough water boat for its size!
He may chime in here at some point.

The New York CV is owned by Mike and a very nice piece. His number is 585 three three zero 31 zero six.
I have owned several 26's over the years including the step 26 and like the straight bottom better. Easy engine access and convenient bow storage.
Has great hardware just needs k planes
