Dick Rees custom Gentleman’s Racer C-Stock hydroplane
Please see notes from the owner below:
“”This APBA Super C Yale replica has been gently and respectfully converted to a gentleman’s racer for use by any and all racing wanna-be’s. 4 s/s bolts attaches the new aluminum secondary transom to the original. If the new 2018 Tohatsu 20 HP EFI electric start is purchased it comes complete with its conventional steering and throttle controls. BUT, all of the original racing rigging is available (see photo). I brought this home from NH is 2016 and sent it into a local boat shop who added 10 coats of varnish and some colour. The motor and/or trailer are extra. Email me for a 5-page pdf file describing the boat and its history in detail,”
