Red and withe
Made in USA Texas 1969, rebuilt 2010 in Finnland. Transom was rotten, foams wet etc. After repairs it was very intresting to find out how does old hull behave. Surprisingly well! Deep vee and good balance...

Original motors were Chrysler 85-105. So it's not so big. Chryslers hydro-vee bottom was patented. It provides a smooth ride but needs a lot of power before raising to plane.
