There was a boat of similar construction, griffon Bud style, sitting down here in Jensen Beach, FL for years. I believe it showed up in 89 or 90. You could see it from the Turnpike. The GP-51 and GP-52 (Thundercraft hulls) were both racing at the time. Early-Mid 90's... The last time I saw the boat was in 98. I stopped and looked in 97 and it was in pretty bad shape then. While in Syracuse in 2008 a guy walked up to a bunch of us with a photo trying to sell that same boat that sat in Jensen Beach. He said he purchased it off Ebay? I think I remember him saying he was from the 1,000 islands area. I dont believe it was the GP-747. As Andy stated, I believe I saw pictures of the Trifty as a G or UL boat just a year or two ago.
