    Default 70's Datsun powered Jet

    I am looking for an early 70's boat I believe was called a Sundance. It was an open bow with a small console the driver straddled. If I remember, the pump was supplied by Castoldi. Here in Maryland, they were sold by the old American Motors Rambler dealer. At the time, I was young, married and 2 kids and making NO MONEY!! Like to find one to restore.

    That's not it but it's definately a Sundance. I think the boat was built out west somewhere.
    Boat was a 16 footer.

    The Sundance you're talking about was built on the West Coast in Southern California. The front man for the operation was Ian Dunn who dabbled in some local POPBRA offshore racing in the early 1970s. He also did some PR work for Datsun. I did an article about the boat for Powerboat Magazine in 1974 or 1975. Haven't seen or heard from Ian in years.
