“Bad Company” Flat Bottom
Tim Kioch’s Boat. 1978 Sanger – Sanger Boats were beefed up to go over 100 MPH. Sanger is the original flat bottom, original mold maker and the cream of the crop. Boat was owned by Tim’s father. Bought from a boat show, that held 2 awards of Best Flat Boat in Show & Loudest Boat. First time his father took the 400 HP boat out, his gauges displayed loss of oil pressure. Later it was discovered only a wire was preventing a true reading. Before Tim’s father could ever take the boat back on the water, he passed away.
Tim Recovered the boat from his father’s barn and put the finishing touches on it and took it out to the 2017 SCSC Thanksgiving Regatta. After doing about 10 passes on the water, Motor Locked up, seizing bearing in the crankshaft. Engine had to be completely striped and built. Built an HBR Competition Engine 700HP – Build took 1 year
