Came across this on Orange County Craigslist http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/boa/2232425465.html . I remember watching this boat as a kid at Long Beach Marine Stadium. 1960 Patterson 23'10" with a supercharged Allison V10. Awesome bit of engineering. Talk about cubic inches! 1710ci. Thought you might enjoy! (sorry the pics are so small - stole them from Craigslist)
