This “Classic” was originally owned by George Morales and raced under the name “Maggies Mercruiser Special” which is still branded under the faring. She was then sold to Al Copeland of Popeye’s Offshore Racing. She was known as Popeyes #10 V Hull and has raced and won in numerous offshore races including from Miami to New York in 1985 which set a record for a V Hull vessel, driven by the famous movie actor Chuck Norris.
(In the process of acquiring 4 new forward fuel cells and 4 new fuel pumps and rebuilding 6 external belt driven water supply pumps, this new addition of expenses and labor will not be an additional cost to the winning bidder, it will be our responsibility)
We have already removed the previous fuel cells that were in the boat, we are in the middle of acquiring bids to build the new ones. However, we can fire up each engine individually, move the trim tabs & power trim up and down and maneuver the steering from portside to starboard.
