Old race Coronet 21 Daycruisers

I've got one of the above (hence the user name).

Do any of you guys know what engine(s) the following C21DC used for racing?

Found pics of most in the Gallery (man there are some great pics in there)

1. OH OH SEX

2. MISS SMIRNOFF

3. PULSAR

4. CARNATION

5. Ole Botved's 007

Thanks

Chris

Racing Botveds

Those boats were powered by two volvos from between 270-400 total hp/boat,although in 1967 Ole Botved had a single H & M Ford of 550hp in his Coronet 24ft.

Coronet details

Oh dear,this could end up being the Battle of the Anoraks.

Always interested to update my records,but the 1970 CT race programme indicates Oh Oh Sex had 2 x 165hp Volvos.

I have no record of a Coronet 21 in 1964 having 3 x 120hp Volvo`s.Was it a UK race or in the Baltic?

I do however have recorded that a Coronet 21 in 1965/66 raced with 2 x 130hp Volvos.I think the races were in Denmark.O.Botved drove in 65 and A.Westerlund in 66.

First post Tony and already a can of worms to be enjoyed! Don`t let it put you off.

I think the 3 engined one is this one

"In June 1968 Ole Botved and passengers accidentally fall out of their 21 Daycruiser in the powerboat race Kungsloppet on the Swedish West coast. The boat runs ashore unmanned at full speed and is later recovered without serious damage. It was equipped with 3 engines, double Aquamatic and an additional centre-installed engine with a straight propeller shaft"

Tony could you PM me your number, thanks Chris

This one is a 21 and I think there's a rude word on the side
