It looks like a Big Artic I don't think its a Pacific as I can't see an engine housing.

can you post a picture of the hull front on and the stern (transom). If the boat was used for drop tests is the perspex dome possibly a housing for the shockerometer measuring kit

Hi,

You may be thinking about the big Zodiac. 200hp Yanmar I think. I met a chap at the Folly last summer who has one. He was a Pacific owner and he was looking fondly at Sharkie (who is slightly modified - twin jockey seats and double console).
He told me that he wanted something faster. The Zodiac goes twice as fast as the Pac and consumes twice as much fuel.

Sharkie goes back into service this week (all being well) after some work on the sterndrive.

BTW, I was given a pdf file of the Sternpower Sterndrive and I printed a copy off. Sadly it is very grubby now and I cannot find the pdf to reprint.
Anyone out there got a copy please??

Steve
