Hull #7474

This hull made its debut in 1974 as the Weisfield's and Valu-Mart for Billy Schumacher's team. In 1976, the team picked up new sponsorship and donned the cream colors for Olumpia Beer. It continued to run through the late 1970s for Bernie Little as the Natural Light, and then as the Miss Circus Circus in 1978. The boat was retired after running in 1982 as the Gilmore Special.

In 1976, the team campaigned the #7474 hull for 7 of the 9 racies. With Billy Schumacher driving, the team won two races in Washington DC and San Diego, en route to a second place in national high points.
