Thanks to fellow Woody Boater John Stein for supplying us with another episode of What Iz It.It’z been a while since we have had some fun with the great unknown. but as with anything, it’s only unknown til someone that knows what it iz! And so I pass this note on to you all to fill the sad void in John’s heart of knowledge. Okay, that got a little deep. maybe not all that believable. I mean I don’t think John is up at night wondering who am I, my boat? my life? Does it have any meaning? Or then again. Maybe? So please help John out. Here is Johns plea for a good nights sleep
Might any Woody Boater readers be able to help ID this hull? I bought it in 2018 from the nephew of original builder, reportedly a San Jose, CA assembly plant engineer for Ford. It’s titled as a 16’ 1970 homebuilt. Power is a 289 Ford running through a V-drive.
The nephew thought it was built from Glen L plans but the shape doesn’t appear in Glen L catalogs of the period. I sent photos to a helpful lady at Glen L and she replied it’s not one of their designs. Thus…anyone recognize this shape? Thanks for any clues!
Best regards to the most excellent Woody Boater family,
Thanks John, we are not worthy my most excellent brother!
If you want to dive into the deep okay flat bottom world of California drag boats, its endless and insane cool. But the one great article on the topic is from an old pal and co worker Dan Stoner from Hemmings Motor News. CLICK HERE and be transported to our youth! I can smell the exhaust already. I cant hear them anymore. Who used ear plugs back then!
