I believe that the 41 Bold Ruler and 35 Majestic Prince came out of the same mould. I saw a 41 at Lake X in 97 w/o the moulded platform so my guess would be your boat is the 35 w/o the platform.

I'm guessing you're referring to our yellow single engine 32. If so, the last I heard was that Bruce Baker from Express Racing Engines owned the boat. At least he still owned it when I spoke with him after Hurricane Wilma. Where did you see it listed?

Ben,

It's been listed on OSO several times by Baker...what kind of speeds were you getting with the single motor?

The boat with the blower motor ran 85-86 gps with the race prop. Closer to 90 on a really good day.

You can see it here. The blue Velocity 30 (the one that stops) is the one that I race in now on occasion.

Jon Fuller is thottling the yellowish 26 Extreme.

That's where I grew up and lived until I made the move to England in 87.

Sand Hole still popular? Upon reflection, that sounds like a strange question.

Living in England for the past 18 years has been great.

Time for another move though. Northern Neck of Virginia on the Chesapeake. Hopefully within the next month or so.
