Here Are Some Pics of My Newest Purchase, Its A 1965 Rayson Craft Flat Bottom V-drive, I Bought This From an 82 Year Old Man Who Has Owned it Since 1968, After 3 Years of Showing Interest in this Boat, He Finally Decided He Wanted To Sell it To Me, It Has A 1965 390 W/ C4AE-G Heads, C5AE Cast Iron 4V Intake, W/ A Solid Flat Tappet Cam ( Cam Specs Unknown) He Used To Race it Throughout The 70's in The SS Class. The Boat is Begging For A 427, But The 390 Runs Pretty Hard as it is. I Need To Put an Aluminum Intake on it & Free up Some Weight & Horsepower. Anyone Else Here Into These? I Saw Some Pics of John Vermeersch's SOHC Powered Flat on Here A Year or So Ago.

Badd Ass, that would be the only way I would own a boat. Definitely would look good setting next to my other FE powered toys.

Near future project is a '32 Roadster Fe powered based on a late sixties S/R.
There were many 390 speedboats around here (Vancouver) in the day, but the rich kids preferred the 150-175 hp two-stroke clamp-ons which were, probably, (and in fact,) faster, but only a rich kid would use an aluminum salt-water-cooled motor instead of a fwc car-based engine. Funny thing, hereabouts the 427 was used only in big boats, in pairs.
