No problem GC...

John Lovell is thinking mid-90's with the twin 700's, maybe more once they get it on the water and start tweakin' with it.

It would a pure guess at this point as to what the 1075's will produce in the next one.

Don Johnson owns the name "scarab" and it's now to referred to as "your johnson"............

They were making more money with cc's and you can't blame a company for being money wise!

I was a dealer for Scarab at the time of stopping
production. There were a couple of factors.
A 33 step hull rolled in a poker run, total driver error,
and Genmar did not like the limited production of
these labor intensive boats. The factory had a Scarab
building and a separate paint shop for all the scarab
models. Larry Smith did and does own the Scarab
name and if you can get him to build you one it would
be a kick *** boat. Frankly i liked the 38 non stepped
hull the best for rough water ride.

Hi Dave,
I thought I read somewhere that LS is building the 39' Kona boats utilizing the Weismann inline Engine installation with Weismann outdrives and offset gear boxes, the Lucas Oil boat for Nigil, under the Team Scarab name and also has the ScarIB brand, the 34' and 54' RIB line under team scarab as well.
