Every item on this boat was replaced or restored. The wood, hardware, engine, paint; everything was replaced or repaired. The entire restoration process has been documented with an extensive logbook with every day worked on the boat described and dated. Every receipt was also kept and many photos taken of the process. The original blueprint plans for the boat when it was originally built in 1975 are also with the documents. I bought the boat in 2017 and finally got around to run it about six months ago. was amazed how well the boat drives and handles. Once the boat gets up on plane it is incredibly smooth and stable. The boat was very easy to drive at speed and handled great. These boats were regarded as some of the best driving boats in their times. We ran the boat for the afternoon and it did great. got my father in the boat who is now 75 and had not been in hydroplane in 50 years. It was amazing! Unfortunately the engine got hot and eventually would not turn over. have not had chance to find out what is going on, but the boat is not running now and suspect it will have to be rebuilt. was going to get crate motor and put in it but just don’t have the time with all of my other projects. I have an extra prop, the crane straps and couple of extra carburetors that came with the boat. The trailer, which is in great shape, also goes with the boat. also have full cover for the boat that will include in the sale. History:This hydroplane boat was built in 1975 by Jim Mowery.
