Does anyone here remember this boat. It was originally from the Reno NV area in the early 80's them taken to Indianapolis In. and now calls Florida home. Story at www.dragboatfever.com

1043600


This was posted on riverdavesplace back in 2018 but didn't result any significant new leads. Just got my account activated here and have seen other posts about Lake Lahontan which is where this boat was run in the early 80's.

Thanks in advance to those who respond with information.

I bought the boat from Roger who had it listed on dragboatcity.com never could understand why it went so long "Several Years" without being updated as sold. Do you know if any old pictures exist from back in the 80's?
Thanks,
Steve

Based on the information Rodger provided he likely bought it from your dad. Was the boat operational when your dad had it?
