Notes about the Model: Minor changes to the hull from Supertest II. It is different then the usual GALE V. We will see which boat proves better.

 

Notes about the Real Boat: Built in 1961 as Miss Lumberville and raced in 2 races. In 1962 it became Dewey's Lumberville and ran in one race. After going through several owners it came to the Race Boat Museum. The hull was painted up as Nitrogen and a stand in the movie Miss Madison. Now it is open for rides as Oh! Boy Oberto.
