The gel is original. Some dude sprayed over it with a clear coat....the gel is great it is just the clear that has wore off in places. Looks amazing wet.  Dry u see the patches the clear is lifted. The pump is a split bowl  just picked up from Peterson. Intake was  reset with a machined shoe and ride plate by him. Droop and a new aluminum A impeller.  Had a 600ci chevy in it. So all motor plates and rail kit is set up for chevy. It is a 79 so it had the long pod. Colors are great!! Just have been spending a lot of money on a different bubble blower.

She is a great boat. I tore her apart as the big motor  blew up and thought I would restore her completely. Did the bottom pump intake gages then was gonna cap her and put her back.  But then I picked up a 18 CP and have been pouring money into it. Don't need both and I dint want her to sit and rot. Here is a pic of the CP

I have talked to quite a few guys about  my SWTD. Nothing I was interested in. 1 guy I might trade some work with. But yes still for sell. U are more then welcome to take a look and ask questions. Solid boat needs put back together. I would love to see her done up right inside and out. She was fun and fast

Yes sir. He had it a long time.  It ran hard just sat a long time. Lines were all clogged and just others from sitting so long. I was reLly excited to pick it up. Ran it all summer and it ran well. I had built a 514 13 to 1 for the SWTD that I just swapped into the GW. So I am really excited to see how it runs.  I have really enjoyed going through it little by little and putting line everything. I am hoping the sale/trade of the SWTD will get the inside all new floors maybe with some balsa. I want to clean it up and make it a looker.  He had it all bare bones to haul ass. I think it will handle a little more weight with the bigger motor. All in all I think it is a great boat. It was set up well. I was kinda afraid of it as i never ran a winger. Always V or the tunnel. But it running great and really smooth. So I am a believer in the winger!

Cool!   jim is a really cool guy.....   I remember when it was freshly redone in 94 or 95..    He pulled up with his wife on the beach in Willow Valley and my idiot buddy tried to throw him a beer.   He over threw it and bounced it right off the deck of his brand new gelled boat.    My buddy wanted to hide under a rock....lol.  No damage and Jim just shrugged his shoulders....   Had a 13 to one 468 or so at the time as I recall....

Sorry for the jack,   Good luck with the SWTD!    Somebody will snag it....

Wow!!! That is a great memory! That is what he said was in it.  The 468 ran well this summer I think it was just over do for a rebuild. It had quite a bit of water in it. You can tell jim put a lot into it,, but it sat a really long time. And I think with some newer technology it should run real hard!  BTW he has a loader I haven't seen before, it doesn't have much open area. Likeda like a pc of angle iron down the middle. I will post a pic I need some help with it. I think the motor I put in it won't get enough water.

I suspect it's sold as I PM'ed him and brought the cash to the river to buy it but he hasn't responded. If it's not sold, he lost one buyer with cash in hand.......
