Health forces sale! Here you go; a light b-boat (former winning Seattle SS not run since the 70s!) with stroked iron 392 now a 450 cube Hemi all ready for Pro Stock. Set up for Methanol (Alcohol) with the best of everything! 10 degree box with extra gears, extra props, and much Vintage stuff to be had! I do not know the price so I can't list one! I do know it's never been busted up! The glass work done for the Hemi is first class since it's owner used to have a boat restoration shop in Idaho.
I will offer my help with this sale, & supply additional info and escort an interested person, with cash, for a viewing in the heated shop it has sat in for decades!! I had a ride in this in 2004 (its an animal! I begged to go ashore) and that was the last time in the water (twice since it's restoration)! Having been an acquaintance since 1980, I would love to get him top dollar to help with Medical bills. I will gladly supply further info and help with showing the boat and negotiations. This boat has been lovingly restored by a long time Dragboat/Altered car drag racing professional now in retirement. Beisemeyer was built to reset the PS Kilo record with plans of installing a K engine next! I't's current address is in Northern Idaho, close to Spokane Wa. The late Dick Bemment of K55 fame wanted to purchase this hull to replace his Bezer, right before he bought his Canary hull, now SS55! Dick and Bob Long were friends with 'Bad Creation's' owner. This is one beautiful piece, you can PM me the 'jerk' for further details or 'Former Farmer' who lives very close by.

More pic



Note the Pro install details and electronics, vintage #1102 Algon PS K boat shaft release, quick release seat hardware, multiple high speed systems, solid drive shaft and greek couplers, and if memory serves very rare 354 Mondello reworked high compression cyl heads! If I remember, engine was 12 or 13 to one compression with it's huge stroker billet crank, also rare and Vintage. Sorry if I forgot some details but believe me, this 392 makes some huge torque! I believe it has 22 or 25 gears (for our short 3/4 mile course) and rare Gibbs propeller plus other special spares. As stated, this is one rare piece! A true survivor! Not a barn find! Built by a perfectionist, and I say that as a compliment!
The floors and side boards are pristine, just this dark photo makes them look bad!

No problem Mr Morris, I didn't see yours either or I would have saved a few hours today!! He also has a B/A Altered for sale with an aluminum Hemi Donovan and spare engines, blowers, etc. Also a 1956 Greyhound converted MotorHome also for 25Gs. Don't know what the asking for the Altered is. This B-boat is $25,000 with lots of extras.

Gee, what's the engine worth separately?

I can vouch for that HEMI being worth an ASS LOAD of money.... I have one similar here on the stand in my shop and it was painfully expensive. I'm surprised there isn't an army of guys going after this boat. I asked my contacts to take more pics this weekend if possible with better lighting on things.

Is there a price less motor?
Not at this time, spoke with him last weekend and he needs the high side of 20. It has wildly ported Mondello 331 heads and currently has a 30/1000 head gasket so a thicker one or later heads should lower that compression some! Best of everything plus lots of 11 to 1 Donovan stuff is available!

Metalflake?

Did I mention this hull was formerly Green Metalflake? He found it near Seattle Wa. He says, under 400LBs! Don't hold me to that, it's the owners statement. Yes, he redid the bottom but that was a few years ago and never raced it!
