MONGOOSE RACER 20
OUTBOARD OR STERNDRIVE Featuring Powerful Performance and Quick Acceleration.

An 18 deep "V" hull with lift strakes

The 19'8" deep vee has a classy ski boat look with ample freeboard and modernistic contour. The Mongoose is outstanding in its responsiveness and consistency while turning at any speeds. It reaches plane quickly and acceleration is impressive. For skiing, it lays down a wide wake, and gives you a fine test of your ability. The cockpit area can be altered to suit your own personal layout. Our test boats featured twin bucket seats up front with plenty of open area aft to accommodate skis, jackets, etc. The instrument panel is located so as to be seen easily by the driver. Construction features 3/8" marine plywood hull coverings over solid mahogany ribs and frames.

Wherever speed and maneuverability is desired, weight of the boat is always a major factor. The Mongoose racer, constructed of plywood using our Epoxy Plus wood epoxy saturation technique, enables you to build this racer several hundred pounds lighter, stronger and less expensively than a similar fiberglass model.

The Mongoose features: Quality deep vee hull, Rugged construction, Solid handling, under various water conditions, high speed performance and stability, corners exceptionally well, in all water, and, lift strakes.

The photo on the left is our Mongoose Runabout which was submitted by a customer from Mt. Clemens, Michigan. As you can see, he certainly did an outstanding job. This builder added an air foil and an aft deck hatch to cover a 350 Chevy Merc stern drive. He has obtained speeds over 70 mph. Built from a Clark Craft complete boat kit, Epoxy Plus and GL 10 Epoxy Glue were used throughout the construction.

Plywood planking is easy to install on this rugged new racer. Epoxy Plus has been applied on all interior parts. Our test model used an optional 2 layers of heavy duty class cloth saturated with Epoxy Plus.
