Nice boat, ten years old, but only a few races on it. Our 400 hydro and 20 A boat are both over 10 years old. Needs our logo and number, a few stickers, then the three minute warning.

$4500. 2016 APBA OSY400 nationals winning boat. Built by Matt. Twin sister to John Peeters 7-time OSY nationals winning boat...

Ryan Melony Morris... D Mods are more fun... Rather go 90 than 65... And easier to sell right after a national win.

Mat ault built about 10 at $2000 to 2600 but he ran out of material and the boat price went up so high that he quite building them. A few are still being run today. Jeff Webster, Jon Peters, Chris Mizner, Danials and ours. Ours was not raced much. Just took off some unnessary hardware and it weights 101 lbs. It has 5 lbs of lead stuck in the right sponson.

After a successful week of racing in West Virginia at the APBA Nationals, it is time to focus on the NBRA Nationals this weekend in Claremore, OK. The crew is loading the boats on the trailers and fine tuning the motors. The competition will be great and we will need to be on our "A" game to take any trophies home. So thankful for this crew pictured here that make it all possible. ... See MoreSee Less
