    My Grandpa was Jerry Lembke one of the partners in Speed and Marine Associates. Their own lines were Continental Day cruisers, and later Silverwing boats.

    A couple of members here have or have owned Continentals

    Bud Bailey was added to the fold when Spectra closed. He designed the Silverwing 27 and 34 that went on to become the Hallett 270 and 340.

    Maxed out has this blue one for sale right now with twin 454's.

    The sound of that Jag was fucking annoying as shit! When you are hungover and try to sleep in your van at Echo and it’s making hot laps.
