Frahs 17 Frahs 17

The Frahs 17 was an SK type hull and came from the factory with an 11.5:1 Chevy 454, capable of over 80mph in stock trim. It was reviewed by Powerboat magazine, who approved it for "performance oriented families".

This may or may not be the same as the Stevens 17'; Terry Frahs purchased the Stevens mold when Stevens went to 18' boats.

DiMarco 21' Day Cruiser

The DiMarco hull was a splash of a 20' Spectra, but Sonny did a few minor changes to the deck. At the rear it is rolled rather than stepped like the Spectra and all around the gunnel at the deck there is a nice rolled recess, really looks good. In 1976 the Spectra that was used for the splash was still in Sonny's yard. Really nice boats and well built. I can't compare to Raysoncraft as I have never been in one or owned one. Probably doesn't ride as well as a Schiada as it has less deadrise.

This mold was later sold to Kurtis Boats and then to Canyon.

Aquacraft 19'

The plug was built by Harlan Orrin, and there was never a glass deck built for the hull, they were all wood deck boats. Most of them were endurance race boats.

Aquacraft 18' Shark

Produced for circle racing and speed ski racing, the Shark was the first flat with strakes on the bottom. It is the prototype for all the later B-boats. Story goes that Julian Pettengill and Ron Ehde started out with a Aqua Craft Shark (with dropped chines and strakes). Made whatever changes they made, and the current Biesemeyer mold was built. Rusty Biesemeyer designed the deck and the rest is history.
