    Default Mini Gran Prix

    First picture: Not sure about these but I think 266 is Lon Sawyer and 16 is Joy Gohr.
    The location was Libertyville Illinois, 6-23-1985.
    Second picture: Bill Richter Sr.in boat, me on the pier holding the boat. Can't remember where.

    Default #244 Hull?

    What hull and vintage is the #244 in the pictures. I would love to find and restore one some day. Those are the OPC boats I remember watching when I first started getting into performance boats.

    Thanks for the awesome pictures!

    Mid 70's vintage.

    The Merc T2X motor came out in mid 1973 ... this style boat a little later. They were raced thru the mid-80's in various classes
    Since 1925, about 150 different racing outboards have been made.

    That 244 boat looks a lot like my old Broughton.

    It does look look like a Broughton with the cowls replaced. Heres another shot of the same hull, Bill Richter Sr in the other boat. The class is Mod 100, 1978 or 1979. I wish I could remember the race location....that building in the first picture looks so familiar.

    Do you think it could be Danville, IL?

    I think it is a Johnson FT-10 S..(a 55hp powerhead on the same midsection I used on the Evinrude65 SS 1973).

    The pipes are not from OMC..

    I thought the Broughton cowls were like Leatherby's in the first picture on this thread or #414 in the third picture.
