As title really.

Looking for someone in or around north east who can carry out some mods/work on my boat.

The boat is a 1960's american drag boat, and believe has been fitted with a Hemi V8 (V drive gearbox), althoughthe engine is in boxes.

Looking to have the deck finished as per Riva/Chris Craft boats of the era.

Any help would be appreciated. Scimilar to pic below

This is the coolest boat I have seen here,
I guess there aren´t many survivors of that era even in the US ?
If you need help with the engine pop over to the "Drag Racing" section of PH,
there are some experts who might help in the rebuild.
If finished, it could accompany the Allard Chrysler nicely on a display....smile
