    Thanks to all who have posted on this thread!

    Rick Remley's Formula 100 used a CCC/RS tower and gearcase under his V4, which worked quite well.

    Keith Barco used the same setup on his V4. His boat was also very fast.
    I took these in Jensen Beach Florida (near Stuart) in '88 or '89 when I worked for OMC.

    Bobby Cullinan's boat and motor from the same race at the Jensen beach causeway.
    I never saw anyone cut the exhaust snout off of a clubfoot before but it must have worked pretty well....he won that day.

    Another Formula 100 V4 powered boat from Jensen Beach. I don't remember the name
    of the driver.

    I was surprised at the large number of V4s there on that day.

    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.
