I bought it less motor probably 5 years ago now (it’s been a long slow process) tore everything out of it and started over. I wanted to rig it like a ski race boat since that’s what I grew up in. looking at all the sick rigging and open floors So I started by having the floors done. Then I sketched up some of the rigging I was thinking about rails, seat bases, pedal mounts foot brace. Showed what I had to Phil D21 and he took it to the next level making all the pieces. The motor I had got rebuilt by Barry at Obnoxious it was one of our old ski race motors that we broke and I polished up the whole gentry setup. Then plumbed everything which is a pain on these turbo motors way too many hoses. Converted the steering to full hydraulic to the wheel. Sold the drive that was on it and bought an scx upper with sc lower. Then decided I didn’t like the bow lights, stereo hole in the dash, exhaust holes etc and while I was having glass work done might as well cap the nose and tail. I keep the boat at my dads it won’t fit in my garage so I definitely don’t end up working on it as much as I should but with this whole stay home shit I’ve gotten a lot done. Fired it last week. Now looking into who I’m gonna have do interior but everywhere is closed.

I remember seeing this boat in Parker when I was in my early 20s. Owner had a quad rotor blower motor on a Bravo 1 that would rip on the Strip. Boat would also turn at crazy speeds. Always wanted to own one. Nice job bringing it back to life.

That pick where it looks like shit was after I ripped the carpet out. it was in ok shape I could have thrown a motor in and called it good but wanted to do something different.
