A wood-bodied Hauptner that the Vixen was based
on. Driver is Ron Baker Jr.
Wood Vixen at Kankakee,
The Vixen is
a fun boat to drive with one person. Two people will slow it down about 10
MPH. If not careful, it is not hard to stuff the bow into a wave. The boat
will usually run flat with two people. Rough water should be avoided.
Hitting waves can get the boat airborne quickly, and while jumping waves can be easy
to do and fun, the driver needs to exercise caution.
