    It's 12 feet so maybe it is a D boat, I was wondering if you would maybe have any photos or information on the gas tank that would mount in the back of the boat?

    A 12’ boat would be a C or D alky boat to that Era. DSH boats were typically 11’ & CSH boats about 10’ 6”as the Sid-Crafts & Sid-Sons were. Marchetti’s we’re about the same give or take an inch or so.

    Oh wow, a C/D alky would be cool to have, I didn't realize that would be this type of boat.

    I guess I don't have to worry much about running my D stock 55h on this

    it's a very solid handling boat, feels very good.

    It was repaired once for sure as there is new wood for the steering wheel and a lot of nails and fiberglass in one part of the bottom


    Sponsors and rear 4 feet are square and flat

    Coutts was a Konig, download poker android Keller and Record prop dealer as well as a boat builder.
    Thanks for the history lesson! It's like uncovering the tales of racing legends.
