SDM is a proud sponsor of the champion ski boat Swooper. Swooper is a 30 year old 19 foot Connlley Craft that competed in the Bridge to Bridge Ski race for over 15 years, winning numerous titles, across a number of divisions in its day. After lying dormant for 15 years, SDM began restoration work on its motor and stern drive in 2010, in an effort to bring it back to its former glory. SDM aims to complete Swooper’s restoration in time for the 2012 Hawksbury River Bridge to Bridge Race.

SDM built a custom 540CC, big block Chevy with mechanical fuel injection, producing in excess of 900HP. With the set up of a new retro-fitted Imco stern drive to replace a Stern Power stern drive, Swooper will reach 110MPH. Meticulous with it’s restoration, every hose is braided, each nut, bolt and bracket polished and custom made, reflecting the workmanship that Phillip carries through to his customer’s vessels.
