More brilliant photos from Joe's album. "SUSPENSE" was his first ski boat going back some 25 years now ...she's bloody gorgeous! Skicraft badges on this glass hull with timber deck are a bit confusing as she is almost definitely an early Gilflight. Keen eyes will spot the striking similarity between these David Gill hulls and Ron Craddock's Skicraft Clinker Deluxe, so similar that I believe there is a connection.
"SUSPENSE" ran a sweet 327 in V-drive configuration and sure looks like she got along alright. Where is she these days? We would love to hear from anyone that knows of her.
Please check out Joe's other rides by clicking on his album label seen below ...this bloke is a real Aussie ski boat nut! Cheers for sharing mate.
