Hull #8401

This was one of the most distinctive boats in hydroplane history, as it was the first turbine boat for Fran Muncey's Atlas Van Lines team. Also, it marked one of the first boats to feature a reinforced cockpit, with the driver strapped in. The boat competed through the 1988 season for Muncey, when it was sold and competed under a variety of sponsorships through the early 90s. It last raced under Mike and Lori Jones in 1999.

In 1984, the team struggled with the new turbine engine. Chip Hanauer drove the boat, as it missed the first two races and made its debut in Evansville. The boat collected two victories in Madison and the Gold Cup in the Tri-Cities, but ultimately finished 6th in the national high points.
