Default Can someone identify this tunnel hull?

Hi
I bought this boat at a garage sale and just finished fixing everything up and it's ready for a maiden.
I believe its from the early 1990's ?
Does anyone know who manufactured this boat and what model it is?
Thanks!

Thanks Blackout!
Thats definetly the boat Leecraft XT460 ...looks like the builder cut an opening in the front to add the driver and there is also leadweight up in the nose for balance.

The only identification I can find on the carb is a large letter C with capitol letter b inside the letter C .
CB
There is no low/ midrange mixture on the carb so I am curious how it will run.
I've never heard of the manufacturer but I have been out of boating for many years now.

Should go good, looks like it has been built for racing. Racers often remove the low speed.

Sorry guys but it appears to be an Aero-Tech 7.5/11 hull to me, I had one about 10 years ago.
As far as the carb goes, if it is a CB, you've got a great one there and kind of rare. I can't remember what the CB (the builder's initials) stood for but the maker passed away a couple of years ago.
The pipe may be one of Jim Irwin's, not 100% sure on that though.

Nope, not one that I know of.
I don't have any pictures of mine but Joe Monohan at 707 Specialties sold the Aero-Tech's at one time.
The one above may be a LeeCraft as the Aero-Tech had one change from it, an additional lump along the top of the cowl. Missed that the first time.

I have 2 of his carbs and they are very well made. Gotta be from NY or close. Let me get a Pic very unique each one. I knew I seen that carb before.
