In response to your email of February 9, I have enclosed pictures of the Kingpin that I built in 1973 from one of your kits. I started it in March of 1973 and put it in the water in July. We didn't have seats, upholstery, or engine cover but we had to feel it run. We started out with a four-twenty six Hemi and a Berkley jet drive. It was a real screamer. I built the hull exactly as per plan and with your frame kit. We changed the foredeck from the daycruiser style to the style that is in the pictures. By fall we had the finish work done and pulled it down to Havasu.
Every place we took it, we gathered a crowd. One trip in Wyoming, I had eighteen people aboard and pulled my son off the beach on his slalom. I got busted by a game warden for not having enough life jackets and he insisted that some of my people get on board his boat. The water got pretty rough and he was having a bad time, so I escorted him back to camp. He told me, after my time in court, "I sure wish we had boats like that!" It was the toughest, safest boat that I ever owned, I'm looking forward to paging thru your current catalog.
