Magnum 27 Sport

Does anyone please have a copy of "Sport Boat " Magazine Dated May 1997.
I am told that there is a feature artical about "Sidewinder" and it`s first rebuild which I would very much like to read.
A photocopy will do if that is possible.
Many thanks
Ian Toll

Sidewinder

I don't have a copy but remember reading the article, if i remember correctly it was found abandoned from a failed drug run, and it showed it all redone, red and white. a really good article.

I've also known Craig for years (he even put on a very nice going away party for us when we left the UK in 06) and didn't know that his father was a founder of Henleycraft Ltd!

Ian, actually, I just took Bens first two images and stuck men together (ish) for you. being across two pages, they don't join too well

No, but I have found away to spend a fantastic amount of money and use up time that I don`t really have.

I am sure you will recall " Boats are the purest form of madness" and my brother is equally insane, it runs in the family

Yes you are correct, I bought "Sidewinder" last March. The second
Magnum 27/28 which I promised my self since 1976 when I sold " Magnum Tornado" to buy a house.
A change of boat name is on the cards, although there can only ever be one original "Magnum Tornado" so may be "MT2" is a posibility. MT is also my wife`s initials so if she sees MT on a check book stub she will may be think I am spending money on her - getting the drift ? -
I looked around the States at a number of 27 rebuilds but I wanted a very early one with original fittings but more modern equipment and concluded the only way to know what you truly have is to rebuild it yourself.
I have to say that Mr Tony Davis is responsible for this, he told me about John Eberhart Jnr and his Magnum (I used to race against his Dad when he had Paper Tiger). So I contacted John who then told me that he had sold the boat some time ago and gave me another name to follow.
I have to say that Both John and Craig must have done a fantastic job on their rebuilds because the boat its self was in structualy great condition and by this time had Bravo 1 drives. I also appreciated that all of the deck fitting were original and what wasn`t still on the boat John had in a store.
The next owner to John was not however so dedicated and appeard to have spent some time trying to reverse the procees, reverting the boat back towards the condition as when John found it.
That particular owner once published on OSO that he needed a "New engine builder" as he lacked reliability. I would disagree, as I belive he reliably broke down on many occasions and now having taken the whole boat and engine installation apart it was not difficult to understand why.
The Magnum what ever it`s name is, will be 40 yrs old this September
and still has more grace and style, plus performance than many of its modern counterparts.
It is a true classic "All American Hot Rod" with a few modern twists and I am very pleased to be able to carry out this work whilst I am still able.
PS once finished the debate in the family is do we run a chainsaw down the middle and make two wall plaques out of it or simply put it in a glass case for my grandson.
Either way I will still run it first. I want a picture of Mr Aronow`s first build, the start of a legend, along side my brother Apache, Mr Aronow`s last, Alpha and Omega together.
