The Specialist - a vintage 225 hydroplane





"Racer Bob" Dabrowski had "The Specialist" built in 1975 when he saw a Karelson driven by Jerry Bangs in "Champagne Lady" run the doors off Gordie Reed in "Miss Genny" at the Nationals at the Hydro Bowl in Dayton. It was the only 225 Ed built, and it ran a  George English 215 Buick throughout Region 6 during '76 through'97. It won the 1978 Southland Sweepstakes in St.Pete's Fla and beat the best in the country. See the cover of Propeller mag in April '78!! Then the boat ran as a 5 Litre/NM when Bill Densten raced the boat in the 80's.


The boat has been completely refurbished by Jason Pomerleau- new bottom, stepped sponsons, 5 ply deck in 2009, rewired and engine inspected, painted and re-numbered in 2012. The current engine is a 5L Warren Hayworth engine done up by Marty Wolfe, Wolfe Engines, Chicago. Engine details and specifications are available with history pictures.


The boat is a dream to drive-no issues whatever! The whole package includes full covers, hydraulic double piston 12v tilt trailer, two props with boxes, fuel cans,  waterproof six drawer full tool box with custom cover,  Holley 600 carb with storage box, log book, new Snell 2010 helmet, life jacket, new lift sling, '"The Specialist" banner and spare parts-full package ready to go.

Ford Falcon Engine for a 145-Class Hydro




This Ford Falcon engine for a 145-Class hydroplane was  built and modified many years ago by Willard Wilson. I bought it for a Ruark hydroplane restoration project way back in the 1990’s but never used it. I just pulled the head to make sure no moisture had gotten into the block. There is a little surface rust inside the head at the valve, but the bores are clean and polished. The engine was never fired. I think I have the aluminum flywheel and carburetor as well. Call or email for more information.

The world’s first fiberglass powerboat was designed and built in the backlot of a Burbank California restaurant in 1948. It was a product of the imagination and ingenuity of two brothers, Billy & Bob Campbell. The Campbell boat line expanded through the years, a product of continuous innovation and refinement. To own a Campbell boat is to own an original, a one of a kind master work of power, performance, and luxury. As the Campbell brothers have said many times… “  if you’re really serious about high performance boating, sooner or later you’ll own a Campbell “.

Available for sale is a custom ordered 1978 Campbell 20’ Daycruiser, originally owned by Daniel Remy. Remy was a Mayor of Burbank, California for two terms, ’79-’80 and ’84-’85. Burbank was referred to as “Beautiful Downtown Burbank“ on Laugh-In and The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson. Carson is said to have been a golfing buddy of Remy’s. The boat was named “Thumper” by Remy and has the Character painted on the transom, perhaps a reference to Walt Disney Company headquartered in Burbank. Her name may also be a reference to the original Jake Smith custom, marine, blueprinted 454 power plant.


Hull Number: CBL 204400678

Overall Length: 20’-8”

Beam: 8’

Power plant: 454 Big Block Chevy ( repowered )

JS-00 “Orange Crate” - one of Jersey Speed Skiff racing’s most famous boats




Few, if any will argue with Orange Crate’s status as the first successful fiberglass racing skiff. Built in 1965, then she was stripped to bare hull and completely rebuilt, including all new wood bottom, stringers and bulkheads, by Skip Gillam and Roger Harris about eight years ago.  She is powered by a “built” for marine use 350 (Chris Craft conversion) with only two or three vintage regatta heats on it, a transmission and an electric water pump.  Skips says, “boat handles great and could be competitive today.”  She rides on a custom trailer built by Skip. This “turnkey” package includes new gauges, bench seat, updated trailer and is located in Stuart, Florida.

This is a great ride, complete and ready to run on the vintage circuit !!!

1950s Vintage B Class Outboard Hydro

Swift Woodcraft Inc., Mount Dora, FL




This is a 1950s Vintage B Class Outboard Hydro made by Swift Woodcraft Inc of Mount Dora, Florida. It is nine feet long and needs some finish work. The power is a Mercury 20 H, 1956, SN 790050 and there is no trailer. Asking $4,500 for Hydro and engine or reasonable offers. Might consider separating depending on price. You will need to pick up in Southport, NC. I got this rig from my cousin who bought it in the early 1960s when he was a teenager. He ran it on Paw Paw Lake in Watervliet, Michigan. I remember getting a ride in it back then and the locals claimed it would do about 60 mph.  They tell me the engine was also called a corn popper because of the noise it made – well I can tell you it is a lot louder than a corn popper – it is like Mozart to a gear head. Needs a caring owner. I set out to restore it myself and run it, but other priorities have prevailed and I no longer have the shop space. I can email more photos or information.

Miss Bert - a 1936 historic wooden boat



This 1936 historic wooden boat was named in the 40’s as “Miss Bert” after the original owner’s wife, Roberta.  It has been passed down through 2 families, and enjoys the racing history of the Tri-City area on the Columbia River of Washington State. This has always been a fixture to the area, only used fresh water.

This is a 1936 Mahogany Dual Cockpit boat built with copper rivets. The copper rivets were known to be used in custom Reinell, and other area quality built boats. The actual maker of this custom boat is unknown, but believed to be from the Puget Sound area. Mahogany was the top grade material used for the era. The side name & painting is original and vintage to this historic boat, this is not a recreation! You can tell the condition, boat has very low hours. There is no rot and all wood, seats, everything is original. Boat has always been kept on the trailer in heated garage type storage.

In the 1970’s the boat was refitted with a newer motor and side throttle controls. The original 1937 Johnson Seahorse 22.5 HP motor was placed on a stand in the heated boat garage where it sat for decades. During the last decade, the low hours & original Johnson Seahorse 22.5 HP outboard motor was freshened up and polished and replaced onto the boat. It runs strong & fast.... I was told mid to high 30 mph ranges for the sleek & light weight boat. The Johnson outboard is a unique 2-cylinder with compression bleed off of one cylinder for easy starts. It also has a built in flush port for water hose. It turns over easily, but was drained of gas and winterized a few seasons ago. The steering wheel is active for the outboard. Boat has lived its life in the sunny & dry desert areas of Eastern WA.

Sale of this vintage boat includes the original 1937 Johnson Seahorse Outboard with brass propeller. It also includes the vintage wooden trailer. Both boat and trailer are licensed and currently titled. Vintage trailer is in excellent condition and ready to tow anywhere. Boat and trailer were recently towed hundreds of miles from Tri-City areas to Gig Harbor, Washington where it is presently garaged.

Complete and ready for ACBS Boat Shows and/or ready to run on the vintage circuit !!!
