    Few years ago I was given an old hull and have not been able to find any information about it. Any ideas?

    Welcome.
    I like the looks of it. Look below the rub rail on the transom and near the bow. You might find a hull number scratched into the surface. That would be a great clue.

    Thank you for your response. I have searched around a little and have not been able to find much more than a picture on this site.

    Thank you for the information. That's about as far as I got. The first article about the showroom lark was the original reason for joining this site. However after joining I was unavailable to find that it again.

    Very handsome machines when new or restored based on the links provided so far.

    I'd run a dune buggy type flag on it to be on the safe side.

    Such a low profile could prove to be dangerous under certain conditions.

    I think it would be okay on a private lake or racecourse.

    BlueBell "Whatever..."

    " I was thinking about dropping a small jet in it."

    Hmmm, I wonder how that turned out.
