    Very nice. Any idea what happened to the other boats?
    Since 1925, about 150 different racing outboards have been made.

    Default Rinker was sold

    The blue Rinker next to the F runabout has been sold. It was a fiberglass boat with only a keel and no ribs. I believe Rinker bought the boat back. The Wall's racing team I believe has an other DeSilva formerly owned by Harry. Any other boats he had I am not familiar with.

    Default Harry's Boats

    The boats are still for sale, if anyone is interested Alan will be going back to Leesburg to pick up more parts in the comming weeks. He can take pictures of what ever you are interested in.

    I also was told that Alan and I own two Sid Craft boats once owned by Harry, we are in the process of restroring these boats and will be offering them for sale as a complete package. That is boat, hardware and engine.

    I recently acquired the F DeSilva 13'6" runabout and wondering if this is still a competitive rig or would it serve better in vintage events ? ......I Have a very strong C-MOD Merc with cowling I competed with this year on a DSH Flyer hull and Have a complete Mark 75 to build off of.....Rig has still never been wet...Bottom still needs West and have a center fin to drill and install still in bag......Not very good at navigating this site yet but will add pics as I figure it out........My knees keep telling me my competition days are soon passed so this on tour in vintage may be my exit years ....LMASSOFF......sorta.......
