Those are way cool. The outboards look like the same boats they used in the Yacht Club scene of CaddyShack!

I am good at photoshop, but you'd never know it from this pic. This is just a scan of a pic in the book ;)

Cool photo, I am guessing the S&S are 83-85's with optional higher pylons. Maybe from one of the ski shows up in WI?

There several of them at different shows, cypress gardens had 2 or 3 of them for a couple years if i remember right, does anyone really know? Time for the Februrary MC HISTORY lesson.

Two of my friends went in on the jump boat from TN that was for sale last year. It was in Western Wisconsin for a bit, and now they have it in Southern Minnesota. They are working on fully restoring it. As for the other boats in the picture, I have one of the '83 Stars & Stripes with a Chrysler 440 in it. It was originally ordered by the show team in Amery, Wisconsin. Then, it spent some time in Minnesota, which is where I bought it last year.

There is my two cents on the history lesson!
