    Some day....

    Last year, we toyed with consolidating. Selling the lake house in Kentucky and moving the Formula back to the Great Lakes.
    After shopping RIBs, and realizing how much stupid money they are, I was on the hunt for something more "tender-like".
    Since I like to buy high and sell low, the lake house didn't sell, and the Formula is a glorified, but real nice, day boat at this
    point, so we don't need a tender. But the Mini-Hawk is pretty cool and only 12 feet long....

    If you get serious about a tender, 11' and 13' Whalers are all over the place in various states of functionality for reasonable money. Cool boats and already rigged to hoist on a big boat. They are also easily reinforced at the bow eye for towing on a bridle behind the mothership. My little 13 will run mid-30s with the 40hp Evinrude and I think she's pretty classy with the robin's egg blue and mahogany interior. Just the ticket for doing a beer & burger run while leaving the big boat anchored in the cove. The Mini-Hawk would be cool for that as well. Or maybe the elusive Donzi Dink. RIBs are practical, but like you said huge money and kinda ugly (in a utilitarian way).

    Hadn't heard that about Checkmate, that's a shame if true. They made some really great boats over the years.

    Sutphen Squared! Are those being built in Hopatcong?


    That trailer certainly makes the transport economical. Those 16's need 200 ETEC small block's on the back though to make them sing.

    I'm assuming that Rich Jr. is building the 16's down in Florida and that picture is from his shop location down there. I wonder what the Sutphen 16 weighs as compared to a 16 Donzi Baby?

    What kind of performance do you think they would get with the ETEC? What if you went full retard and threw a 300xs on there?

    I put a 300 on my 16 to check it out. It would depend on the weight but I would think 64-68 with a small block ETEC on the Sutphen 16

    Jim, just in case: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOh-YewzPc0

    I had a 16 that ran 87 RADAR mph. It took a 200 Evinrude, jack plate, nose cone, 31” prop and a 450 pound boat to do it.

    I was running about 84 here. Looks a LOT faster than this boat running 90. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwdtAJ56Im0

    I’m with Jim on this one. That is a nice running boat, but 90. . . .
