Too cool! A Switzer Shooting Star with 1250 MERC TOWER OF POWER. RAN 85 MPH. Raider<><>
Finally.......they got the steering wheel right !!
I heard one of those mota's run at a vintage boat meet in Minnesota. Thats a Hubble exhaust with sonic tuners. I,m talkin LOUD! The same day I got to see a Switzer Wing run with triple Merc 1250's on it. Switzers were always cool to see. Heres a pic of a wing with twin Merc stackers on it at 120 mph. Those boats actually flew!! I believe thats about 1961. Raider<><>
that top one, the Switzer Shooting Star looks like my dads 2nd boat he owned. Although his boat was no-name brand hand made.... wood finish - except the nose cone bow was painted with flames. 65 Merc on the back and it flew.... now i gotta go dig up some of the pictures he has of it and post 'em on here....
Would love to see some pics of that boat. Glad to see other members interest in the vintage boats. Fishing OR race boats. Heres a Switzer Wing with triple Merc stackers. This boat was actually recently located in Fla and is undergoing a complete restoration now by a ScreamandFly member!. It was found abandoned in a field with some other old race boats. LakeRaider<><>
