Also, the car adds in the Tahoe Daley Tribune ran some great classifieds for Shelby Ford. About 15 years back was looking for an old article and came across them on microfilm!

6s2055:  Very cool story!

Anyone have pix of CS in that boat?
Somewhere on one of my backup drives I have an article in an old ski boat magazine of the manufacturer building a boat for CS with a 427 he supplied. I've googled a bunch of possibilities and can't find it now.

Is it this one ? Looks like a Shelby Ford pick up towing.

That's the boat I remember in the article - but it's not CS's so we're back to square one. https://www.motortrend.com/news/cream-puff-saga-craziest-1960s-marathon-boat-history/

Also, if Iím looking at the picture right it has two 427ís, the Tahoe boat was a single engine. Am I looking at the photo right?

Yes you are the link I posted is a newer article on that boat and mentions the twin engines. I imagine the Shelby truck was a PR shot for maybe pitching engines to boat guys or a catalog shot for SA or the boat company. In period a Shelby hook to your product would help it sell - unless it was deodorant.
