In 1964 a second line of OMC boats , the Evinrude Gull Wing, was introduced . This
design carried through the 1967 season when it was replaced by the final version
which featured a deeper V and higher freeboard. Johnson adopted this hull in 1967
as the Sea Foil.
The deck was designed by Brooks Stevens a renown Industrial Designer who had a long
relationship with Evinrude .
Despite our desire to imply passion in the project, at least from the design side
there is nothing in the records to indicate that either designer thought of this
as more or less than a routine assignment. The OMC Engineers supplied the passion!
