Notes from the owner below:

This Gentleman’s Racer features an offshore fiberglass deep V-24o dead rise hull, .(Ray Hunt designed. These hulls finished 2nd place just behind the famous 30 Bertram Moppy raced from Miami to Nassau in the early 1960s.)

Jim Wynne, who drove this class of boat, was hired by Chris Craft to design the X-K, Lancer, and Commander runabouts built from the ’60s thru the ’70s.

The hull no. was the manufacture date.  “G” is the vintage race boat series for the boat’s length and HP.

In addition to the great ride this hull provided, its construction had fiberglass hat sections stringers – no wood to rot.

The hull was  completely gutted, cut down and tumble home provided. Deck and framing are West epoxy to hull with wood composite from 5/8” to 1 3/4” at the hull. Deck and covering boards are 3/8” book matched mahogany. Dashes are ribbon striped with curved grain to match the crown of the deck.The engine is mounted mid-ship to laminated Douglas Fir, epoxied to fiberglass stringers.
