It is actually the same hull as the 19' Lancer, 19' Commander Super Sport, and XK-19
Herb built them in Italy, the particular style did not compete well back then and it did not make it to a third year of production. As a result, this is a rare one! Mechanically and hull, basically a poor mans Commander SS. One thing for sure, you come tooling into the restaurant waterfront docks on North Lake Tahoe in this thing, nobody but nobody on that lake (or anywhere else in North America) has ever seen one of these!
Here is the comparison with the XK-19, exact same wetted hull.
CC used what is referred to as "shoebox construction", which means the top of the box was placed on the bottom section, and CC changed the box top on this hull bottom, and essentially made a new baot model for two years.
