My new to me 1976 Mr Ed 21 V drive

2 hours 18 min ago
Hi everyone new member here. I just bought a 1976 Mr Ed 21 V drive yesterday and I wanted to join PB so I can learn as much as possible about V drives. As I know there are many knowledgeable V drive members here. I was originally looking for a Howard 21 RC but while scouring the old classifieds over at RD's site came upon this old ad and made an inquiry lo and behold was still for sale. After speaking with owner and numerous pics I decided to go ahead and make an offer that was accepted by owner. So now this baby is mine. Cannot wait to get her back East to Long Island. First going to have boat all gone through probably by prime marine. So I know everything is working perfectly when I get it home. Also I would really like to know if anybody knows the history of Mr Ed boats. I know Ed wills was the builder and then was sold to tarva. But I cannot find any good information about Mr Ed boats themselves such as yrs of production how many built etc.. Would appreciate any help on this. Well thanks in advance for any replies. Here are some pics of boat. Attached Thumbnails

Most of you know I had the old screen name of steelcomp. Well the admin kindly merged my old screen name with my new one this week and one of the things that happened is my mail box was suddenly full!
Well these went back to as far as April of 2013. As I was deleting messages I decided to save all my PM's from GN7 and then I came to what I realized was my last message from him. I tell ya, it teared me up a bit. I sure miss my buddy. :cry2:

Here's to ya Bob. Just thinkin about ya. :)hand

2005 Shockwave 29 Magnatude

Fri, 10/21/2016 - 10:38
I'm selling my 2005 Shockwave 29 Magnatude. I bought the boat to get through the summer while our deck boat was being refurbished. Our other boat is nearing completion, so time to let this one go.
Some details on the boat:
540ci BBC, Imco SC drive, Imco Extension Box, Imco Gatlin mufflers, Imco exhaust, Full hydraulic Imco steering, Sea strainer. Iota inverter/battery charger, 3 optima blue tops, Livorsi Monster gauges with new GPS speedo. Eddie Marine large tabs, Dana hydraulic hatch hinges. Drive was just serviced, and impeller replaced. Boat is water ready.
Engine is a tall deck 540, Dart Big M sportsman block, Edelbrock Victor rectangle port heads, Callie dragonslayer crank, Lunati I beam rods, Hyd roller cam, stud girdle, Dart intake, dominator 1050, 14 qt pan. Aeromotive fuel system and large oil cooler. The engine was built with the low compression with the idea of adding a supercharger at some point if desired.
When I purchased the boat, I had the stereo completely redone. Alpine head unit with 2 alpine remotes, new Fosgate digital amps, new Fosgate 12"subs, 3 new pairs of Fosgate highs.
Boat is clean and in good condition.
Hours are right around 210.
Trailer is a triple axle extreme galva tube.
Very comfortable boat that handles Havasu easily on the biggest weekends.
Asking $44k. Need this gone to make room for our deck boat

19 Daytona / Cheyenne stand / dolly

Thu, 10/20/2016 - 12:01
I need to lift my boat off the trailer, next week. I plan to build one this weekend, but I'm curious if I can find a loaner (rental), instead. I need it for a month. Dolly and boat will be in a locked and secure building at all times.


Nor Cal Upholster needed.

Thu, 10/20/2016 - 11:36
I have had no luck finding a good marine upholster. One was recommended in Tahoe, went and agreed on the project. six month later i had to pull the boat out with half the project completed and that half will need to be re done. Then i found a guy in the pleasanton/dublin area that had good reviews. We agreed on a price and time table. Two months go bye and the guy tells me he does not want to do the job.

I am looking for someone that does old time tuck and role. White with blue accents,blue carpet. Very basic, nothing fancy. Any recomendations?

I will go any where needed as long as the guy is good.

OC Craigslist. Super nice 21 Howard

Thu, 10/20/2016 - 06:41
Not mine. This Howard is owned by one of my good friends. I watched him mod it, and have one of the baddest triple axle trailers fabricated for it. It is a super clean piece.
