It’s Hallowe’en, so we wanted to share some “boo”-tiful photos of a wonderful little children’s race boat, built by Rob Sotirin of Mound, Minnesota. Enjoy Rob’s description of the build and the photos below.
Here are some pictures of your “Pee Wee” model that I built in 2000. The boat has given me and my kids lots of great memories. The main modification is a 3HP outboard motor that runs in a standing pipe through the keel – it’s a real “inboard outboard”. I had fun covering the motor with a “mock V8” complete with Quadrajet, chrome valve covers and pipes. The motor’s exhaust is ported out of the pipes, making for loud and dramatic boating for the kids. The seats are from a Porsche 911 and the throttle control is made from a 4-speed shifter from an old Cutlass that I drove as a teenager.
