Notes about the Model: Brian Buaas let me borrow his mold to lay up the Oberto. The hull was designed to be close to scale with no extras added.
Notes about the Real Boat: The real boat ran for the first time in Tri Cities in 1982. In Seattle it got a DNQ, then became many other names and owners.
Notes about 2015: Brian Buaas took it to the straight line in California and set the NAMBA modern record of 68+ mph.
