Thanks. My dad has had one since i was a kid. Bought it back in the late 80's. Here is a pic of my dads boat, my old boat which one of my brothers owns and my other brothers tx-19.

Mines just all white now. At one point in its life it was the same as yours but where yours has red mine was yellow. Same wood grain patterns though.

Check it out here if you want to see the pictures.

It's a 460 .40 over, pretty mild cam, dove c heads. Not sure what it's putting out, last time I had it out was doing 5k and about 60mph was the first time I had it out on the new motor though. Going to make a few adjustments and see what those do. Running an A impeller.

I think I've seen pictures of that boat before on taylorboatroost a few years back when I found mine. Excited to see what you end up doing with it and it's good to have another Stiletto guy on here!

Yea I found it on that page about 7 years ago and luckily I got contacted by the owner. He was trying to buy my brothers Tx-19. I drove to delrio and picked it up.

Hey Joe, nice Taylor there. Hoping you've done it rite! Pretty unique hull. Blues, blacks and white are almost always bitch'n colors. The 1st pic shows the Stiletto low on the trailer, what's going on with that? To me,that's how it should look. "Low an slow" till you hit the water. Then BAAM, all hell happens!!LOL. Keep up the good work,keep us posted.

I lifted it up to be able to sand the hull without taking it off of the trailer. It will sit low on the trailer. I want to do blue and white for sure.
