I have never seen a Magnum like that, looks like a splash of a Cig Bullet

Bullet has uneven foredeck heights, st/bd side is about 4" higher than the port side.

The Bullet's deck was asymetrical to give some extra headroom in the cabin.

The boat pic that MikeyFIN has posted looks very peculiar. Fairing somewhat similar to the Cig Cafe Racer, dashboard a bit like the Cig 28SS but the transom is something I've never seen before.

Speaking of asymetrical, got to love those tailpipes!

As in the progress of redoing it right now?
Have to put a blog somewhere or do I mail you?

Cut the hull and deck from each other as to get to the rot.
Its a daycruiser jetboat just like the rest of them (Howard etc).

Certainly it does look like a mix-match deck..hull is all Magnum 27 thou.
Actually I dont really like the deck.

The high tech pipes has to do something with Swedish laws as every boat racing seems to have them.
