You are right on Roarke Summerford, it's nothing like the tri maran HST though, google Laser LTV , same hull Charger made them in the eighties,called the STV,its an air entrapment V hull, all from one of his designs I think.They were supposed to be a very fast hull, had a buddy who owned one with a 225 omc looper on it , he loved it, said it ran in the eighties. Ther HST was taken off the Stoker SST mold before Pipkorn made changes to the tunnels and added a new deck.
