    Default Cream Puff (Rayson) casale box

    Does anyone recall what as so special about this v-drive box? The article I was reading states it would be way too costly to "remake" it.

    Cream Puff - The Saga of the Craziest 1960s Marathon Boat in History - Roadkill

    Great read if anyones bored.

    It is 3 x size of a normal split case V drive. It can be made still. Talk to Drew or Andy at Casale Engineering. They actually just built a new one for a customer. It is Impressive.

    Thats kind of what i was assuming. Sounds impressive, is it just a overgrown split case?

    Do you know what this new customer was doing with it?

    About 3 years ago I spoke with Mike Leach about his search for the twin to this boat, the "Super Cinders" boat. He said when he got the tip that it was found, he said a purchase & restoration by him would only go forward if that special Casale box (with a 2.5 to 1 ratio!) was still in the boat. He stated that gearbox cost $20K !! It was, and he restored the boat.
    It was run at Long Beach for exhibition and it was accidentally run up on the rock bank. After it was repaired Mike sold it complete to someone in Florida. Jocko

    I would like this one to go back together but the big Casale box is missing.

    I saw pics of it up on the rocks, talk about heart breaking! I can imaging putting that much blood, sweat, tears and money into something and seeing it end up like that.

    Thumbs up Super Cinders

    The last I saw this boat was at Billy Allen’s shop in Kenner, La. Duff Dailey had recently purchased it and it was headed to Florida. I understand it is now for sale. Very impressive.
