New to the outdrive world and working on restoring this Talon. Curious as to why there aren't too many of these around and wondering if there are others? Any input on the history would be appreciated. I know that Ted has the mold out of Canada but would like to get in touch with other owners. Here are a few pics and if anyone has experience with these I am curious as what to expect performance wise. Drive is set up with 1.25 gearing and a 454 Blower motor going in it.

Joe bought the molds and rights from Gary back in '04 I'm pretty sure. Joe has built 22s as well as lots of 37s. That 22 is a pretty good boat. I had one w/ a single 300 Pro Max that went just over a hundred. Be careful of stuffing the sponsons, the boat will come apart. Where the hull and deck are joined at the front it is too small to get at, so there is not a good bond - Gary admitted that to me when I called him on it back in '01. I basically blew the deck and left sponson off mine when I stuffed a wake doing about 80.........

Colby that looks like a sweet project! I have a friend here in MI that has a 22...not very many IOs out there BTW. It equipped with a whipplecharged 502 and max machine drive. He hits 110 quite often with this setup. If you want me to put you in touch with him he will help you out.

I hope that going up there is something we actually do this summer. With the economy the way it is I may have to stay at your place as long as I can and then move on over to Drew's place once your invitation is over extended - ha ha.

Living at Drews

It will be just like when we were in our youth living as bachelors except all the wives will probably have something to say about that expecially Drew's.

In the shop

Well it is getting close to being done. All the work on the bottom is getting cleaned up and what a difference with people who know what they are doing. I think I might need to get rid of the depth finder.
