This was my first boat, at the time my dad had a 1965 15' Hydro-Swift with a 75 Evinrude so going from dad's runabout ski boat to this was a huge change.
I bought the hull when I was 21, spent two years paying for and building a 402 Big Block Chevy engine for it and then after 20 years total and about a year after my son was born I sold it.
This is the oldest photo I have of the boat, this was back when Eric owned it and we were still in High School as that was his truck it's hooked up to.
Here's a shot of the driver's cockpit, there were the up and down pedals plus the gas pedal. I rand dual 660's and the carb linkage was reground to make the carb progressive so all 8 barrels didn't dump all at once. If you look carefully, you can see I'm pulling the boat with the first 1959 Cadillac I ever bought. This time next year I'd like to buy my third boat but to be honest since I live in South Florida now I'm looking towards a Center Console model. I love the picture of your 9 second run, the attitude of the boat is just perfect and the water conditions looked good too.
My re-occurring dream is a find a Sanger hull that was forgotten in someone's garage and has never been in the water. I pretty confident that this time next year I'll have a center console, (the drag boat will always be a separate toy), since I live in South Florida.
I want something I can take friends and family out in, do a little fishing, do a little diving etc.


John Greviskis stopped by on Friday and offered to take me out next week in his CC to check it out, if I do I'll take some pictures and share on the forum. My employer, Max has offered to take my wife Stacy and I out on his Aubury Brother's CC and I'd like to to that for sure. Just to note, in that picture that's me making a 12 second run, I think the bet I ever did was 11 seconds in the quarter. In the past I used to go to the drag boat races at Marble Falls TX and other areas every year without fail.
I love watching drag boat racing too and just hanging out at the races and checking out the boats and the boat engines. I have a 390 FE Ford 330hp motor with Bassett Headers with Nicson front motor mount, fly wheel, TPO and a 750 carburetor that I was going to put in boat.

So I owned it for 20 years but I started driving it and skiing behind it when I was 17 as my best friend had bought it from the original owner when he was 16. I got to see Eddie Hill crack the 200MPH barrier in The Texan which brought the crowd to their feet. There are a ton of center consoles available but some ride much wetter than others and by that I mean wetting the occupants in certain conditions.

The boat was raced professionally by Rick Baker and he clocked 122 mph in 9 seconds in 1976. There are also some brands, Blue Wave comes to mind, that look like they would pound but ride smoother and drier than many deep V hulls do and are stingy on fuel. I didn't put the stereo in till years later when I owned it and it was never in the boat when I raced it.

I saw which ones came in often for service and those that almost never came back for anything other than normal maintenance.
I know which brands I would spend my money on and that's assuming you are even considering an outboard model, single or dual.
