    Default Sleekcraft Double Tunnel

    I am a long time boater but new to boating forums.
    I am restoring a 1978 21 Foot Sleekcraft I.O.Double Tunnel.
    Have been looking through EVERY Sleekcraft Forum and
    Google search under the sun but have only found one other I.O.Tunnel.
    I love the looks of an old school California river runner.Does anyone have
    any information about the double tunnel as far as ride quality and
    actual lift of the design? My goal is to have her in the water by July 4Th.
    I can't wait to open the throttle and grab some air.Pictures in the works if anyone is intrested.
    Thanks

    Default 21 Sleekcrft Tunnel

    I have a 1987 21 Sleekcraft diplomat, after having a few different river boats this boat by far has the smoothest ride of all. Its a little under powered to what I'm use to but the ride make up for that.
