    The Goat boat is still for sale $4500 It needs a little work but would not take much to bring it back to pristine condition It is a true classic and historical racing boat!

    The first one was known by some as the "little Goat Boat". The last time I saw it, it had a MOD 100 Chrysler on it, around the mid 1980s. Mike O'Connor was the driver.
    It was a very tired hull at that time.
    Sad (but not surprising) that it rotted away.

    The last time I saw the 'big Goat boat' (the one Alex has), Bill Travis was running it at a race on Grass lake in Antioch.
    The distinctive 'Jungle stripes' were gone, hardly looked like the same boat without those stripes.
    It was so fast it was ridiculous. I never saw a V4 run like that.Name:  Mike O'connor Chrysler Goat boat.jpg
