    Default 24 Inch Sides!!!

    Nothing short there, I'd bet the sides are 24 inches high...

    Notice PORDUCTION BOAT, BIG SIGN BOARD SIDES, and NOTE, a real sponsor...

    I wish we raced DeSilva Boats with cross flow Quincy/Mercs....

    When I had an OMC 25 short on a BU it was high on the boat. The Tudor probably is way bigger. Looks like it moves out.

    The boat was 14 feet long but it was not heavy and
    it ran good and a lot of fun to drive it
    The boats in this class were Penyan and Yellow Jackets and some crosby

    Is there any relationship between Tommy Tudor and Jack or Rick Tudor (who raced PRO in Fla. in the 70's)?

    Default another Tudor Craft boat, a small runabout.

    Sorry to dredge up this old thread, but my brother sent me a photo of two boats in a Texas antique store yesterday. One is a "Tudor Craft" Lubbock runabout and I'm not sure what builder on the shovel nose hydro. The 100-T runabout says "Tudor Craft" and "Lubbock" on the coaming.
