Thanks to a recent anonymous visitor for this info ... "Maverick Ski Boats were built by Fred Williams. The hull was based on a successful Lewis and the deck was a very clever and advanced design.for the day. Initial turning problems were overcome with a longer cav plate. Williams also built a larger boat of American design which was a successful as a ski race boat. The Maverick was given an American name to tie it in with the other model." ...I'm wondering if the other model referred to is the V hulled 'Hustler'. Fred also built a very successful SK hull the official name of which I'm unsure of, I've always called them a "Buster" hull ..."Goldfinger", "Caroline", etc.
