That was my first speedboat. Did 48 mph (gps) with a 70hp motor.

It was ok on flat water but used to stuff badly in the chop, could have been my driving though.

Due to this I became a dab hand at making new windscreens!

I always had a soft spot for the Simms Super V. Always wanted one when I was a boy.

Didn't they have a kind of 'Droop-snoot' nose, that dropped away for "better visibilty"; maybe that was why they stuffed easily?

The front does drop off a bit!......a special feature!

Loads of fun though

they better not produce more than 3 a year............... they'll flood the market..................supply will outstrip demand; market forces will ensure a decrease in price.

then they'll be doing themeselves out of a nice tidy profit!

I had a metalic blue one one with "Hot Omelette" painted down each side, strange name for a boat I always thought.
