That is a Beautiful, classic runabout. Actually a work of art for the water. Thank you for sharing that.

Missed a couple shots. Proportions might look a little odd due to camera distortion...

The sales drawing shows features not present on the prototype boat... the transom-mounted rudder, a timber keel extension to support and protect the skeg and prop, and a sun shade for the passengers,

I wonder if they would have painted the sides with the Bugatti swoop?


Famous Bugatti one-liners:
A Type 35 owner complained about hard starting in the cold. "Surely, if you can afford a Type 35,you can afford a heated garage!"
To someone complaining about the brakes: "I design my cars to GO, not STOP!"

Pat, They must have had a couple power options. The one at the Peterson looks rigged for an outboard as you can see the steering pulley's and transom motor block. I really like the inboard version!!! Would be fun to try and hide all the electronics from sight.
