Default Any idea what boat this is?

Picked this up a few days ago and was wandering if you guys have seen one like this and know what boat this is? Looks like it had a inboard glow engine with a tuned pipe. About what size do you think? I'm thinking a .45 size K&B.
Has some K&B stickers on the sides...

Thanks,
Phil

the only give-away is the inner liner, made by (neil) sightler hulls,circa 86-89,when they (he) switched to rails. I got a KnB .91(modded by Rod Gerarhty) sittin in my 44" sightler,have yet to finish it though,but a very competetive heat racing hull I've been told,also very hard to come by, and surley capable of at least a .67 size engine.....good score.....

Cool!!![8D]
Sounds like this baby was made to kick some butt!!!
Where's the best place to pick up some hardware and a engine(.67)??
I've got a K&B 11cc outboard motor... Do you think this boat would do alright with an outboard or should I stick with the inboard set-up??
Thanks,
Phil

hey phil,stick with the inboard set-up,although initially set-up for sub-surface drive,I would run it that way,1/4" flex cable so you can upgrade to a bigger engine if you want without questions as to durability,as to your engine and hardware .....your choice...the only limit is your pocketbook
