    Default How Bad Do You Want One???

    I have recently purchased an ORIGINAL TOM IGE Yamato Vee Hull, but plan to put my 50 HP Mercuy on it, getting ready for the Mini Enduro....

    If you'd promise to race her, the weekend before Thanksgiving, I might sell her. What motor are you planning on putting on it???

    Default Where Do You Live?

    In NorCal, Darrell Sorensen has a LOANER C Runabout, that Broc used with my 302...This Tom Ige boat needs more power than a 302...

    You could borrow that boat from Darrell and run the the Oroville 100, March 1st...

    Default Tommy's glass Vee hull

    Ron,
    Is this the vee bottom that Tommy used to run in the in 20SSR and then let the kids take the boat for a ride after the show was over? He would push us and say " go, take it, take it for a ride". I think the boat has a dead rise of 35 or 40 because it would walk back and forth.
    Good memories.
