1971 Miss Hallmark Homes

While waiting for graphics to arrive for the Renault, and with the arrival of laser cut pieces for the U-32 Hallmark Homes I started construction of the second boat for the winter building season. The boat parts were laser cut by Mike at ML Boatworks, and they are very nice. Everything has slotted together perfectly.

The cowling was made by Mitch Dillard from the Classic Thunder club, and it is also a very nice piece.

The original boat was the former Miss Bardahl - the classic checkerboard Bardahl which won the national title back in 1968. In the 1971 Gold Cup in Madison Indiana the Hallmark Homes hit the rooster tail of the Atlas and sunk just 30 seconds into the race. Fortunately the driver, Lief Borgerson was not injured, but the boat was a total loss. I am hoping for a bit better luck with this boat than that.

The initial test run at the lake was promising for the Hallmark Homes. Running with a Proboat 1500 motor and an aluminum 645 prop the boat seems to get up and go just fine. I moved the batteries just a bit more forward after the test run, but overall it was a great initial test.
