To start this thread, Here are some pictures of my hull style, but not my actual boat. They will follow later. 1968 Starcraft Explorer in fiberglass. I call it a tri-hull and the tunnels go completely to the stern. They don't fade away into a deep V as other tri-hulls do. It is rated for 40hp, however, I bought a brand new 1982 50 hp merc in 1983 as a hold-back model from the previous year. According to a Mercury water pressure speedometer, she would do 32mph with just the driver. Just out of High school, I was very proud of her. She made a nice clam boat for 3 men as long as you did not take chances. The boat gets up on a plane very easily, however, it is not a skinny water boat. I recommend that if you see one of these "Free for the taking", or in a fair condition at a cheap price, grab it. I paid $250 for mine, and sold the old junk motor and controls for $50, for a $200 net price in 1983. Doubtful I would sell it for $2500 today with the improvements I have done.
