    Post Looking for History regarding the Delta 13ft v-bottom race boat (FE, T-Boat) Xcalibur

    Hi,
    Known here in Ontario as a Delta. I have also seen them called Xcalibur or Excalibur in the south.
    If anyone knows the origins of this hull, post up what you know. I'm trying to compile the as much info as possible.

    here are some examples:






    Called Excalibur or Xcalibur here:

    Early mold off an Allison bottom. Wide pad. Wouldn't turn properly. Critchfield molded from the Delta. His ladter boats finally would turn.

    Still looking for more info. If anyone has any details to add, please post them up. I've been racing this hull this season and so far it turns quite a bit better than the Voodoo I ran last year. Same motor, but now a short shaft. Boat might be 100lbs lighter too. Perhaps those factors contribute to the better cornering.
