    Just picked up this 77 Brendella Tunnel, looking for any kind of history or info on it. Hopefully the pics come up. Thanks

    Thanks Mouzer. I actually looked for a v-drive tunnel for a while. Ended up lucking into this one on a trade deal. Are the bottoms completely different on a v-drive?

    No, The bottoms should be the same as the V-Drive that I own.Joe Shefo Jr. originally restored with a Ford motor in it. It might have been 1995 here in No. Cal. Good Luck RACERICK

    I was told that centurion ended up with the molds from Brendella, and they did away with the wings off the back. Not positive tho.

    Yep, Rick is correct, that boat was restored by Joe Shelfo Jr. back in the mid '90's. Hopefully he'll check in to this thread. I'll let him know that it has a new owner.

    Nice looking Brendella . My 78 Brendella and my 77 Centurion look the same except the Brendella is 18' long and the Centurion is 20' both have the rear wings.

    Spoke with Joe Shelfo Jr. last night and he says he can't log onto this website any longer (password deal I'm guessing), but he said that he has some build pictures and information that you might be interested in. Get me a phone # and I can put you in touch with him if you'd like more information.

    Rob, I passed your contact info to Joe. Hopefully he can shed some light on this boat for you.
