The design is Rascal by Ken Bassett. She was built by the owner and completed in 2014. Cold molded, batten seam construction, planked in mahogany and maple. The bottom incorporates a 12″ wide speed pad allowing for tremendous acceleration and top speed with moderate power. The vintage Mercury outboard powering her uses a 1980 140HP powerhead with a short shaft mid and lower (with 1.78:1 racing gears) from a 1971 1350.

Performance modifications include: hydraulic steering, Hot Foot throttle, blinker style trim switch control, top two water inlet holes plugged, custom-designed trim indicator and actuator and kill switch. Top speed is over 70mph! Her home lake is Lake Crescent on the Olympic Peninsula.
