Hi Dale, the entire cockpit is wider which allows it to have two separate seats. That configuration was done in 1965 when Shirley Mendelson had it turned into the Shu Shu. It ran the two seat configuration from that point on including it's time as the Miss Budweiser. I would be really surprised if anyone went along in a race.
With the wider seat it would seem the cocpit would be a tight fit, was it wider for giving rides or at anytime was a second person to be on board during races?
John Goodman's 1967 Miss Budweiser will be participating in this weekends Mahogany and Merlot event on Lake Chelan. Rumor has it the Merlin powered beauty has never looked better.
the old girl was i need of some tlc in the tail so i pulled it off will be good as new soon
