That one may be hard to beat. Low marks for height, geometry and rust. The fact that it is on a competition boat makes it more egregious. That thing is so tall, they better watch for low bridges on the way to the ramp.

I've seen scaffolding that would have looked better on a boat. That top level may convert into a nice sun deck though.

That's what happens when some crackheads get access to an arc welder, 200ft of pipe, and don't have to do trash pickup on the highway on Saturday!

I think you may be right. That Centurion is lucky they haven't taken it apart to see how it works.

We screwed up in reverse. These just became the nautical answer to the rat rod.

Low bridges? They may snag some power lines with that one.

Maybe they pull it to the launch behind a Rat Rod?
