Breen Boats Project #2:   a Vic Carpenter original.

The racer above is one  of the first boats Vic Carpenter ever built.  It was purchased in the Toronto Chapter ACBS  “Field of Dreams” display many years ago, at the annual show in Gravenhurst, Ontario

The boat is approximately twenty feet in length,  seats four  and features a low slung Ford 8 cylinder engine . The minimal free-board on the racer  enhances  the impression of tremendous speed to those on board.

This race-boat is propelled by the original jet drive, which makes it quite unique; The owner is having the racer freshened up for some summer fun.
