Like to see some close up photos to get a better sense of the boat's overall design. I have been looking at some of this type of hull for while.

I've offen wondered what is in the mind of some one that puts the "rock your world" on the sails of an RC sailboat?? They must not have ever had any great sex! ;) :) Hope you can say that on the forum.:eek:

Just sayin.....................somethings should be kept in context............right?

Ummmm --- somehow the quote .... "Lipstick on a pig" ..... jumps to mind. :D

I suppose many will be purchased based on "looks" - and it is my educated guess that this will only be competitive if in a one-design, 1 Meter multihull class.

Certainly could have performance issues if raced in the MultiONE class. I would like to see how a 5 lb. multihull would perform against an RG65 monohull.

:popcorn:

added: photo of my original one meter trimaran "IMPULSE" that I think would out-perform this plastic version.

The new Thunder Tiger boat sure catches your eye when you first see it.

Interesting.....there was a thread a few weeks ago commenting on the lack of manufacturers producing sailboats.....

Now when a manufacturer does....comments like this come out..

So I would only have to assume from this comment, that the this person gets everything in their life for free.

Newsflash: any company that advertises anything is after peoples money...duhhhh.

Well lets just say Thundertiger has reputation of making sail boats that are not very good at sailing ... nothing but "bling bling"

But there always some fool ready to part with their hard earned bucks. Put your money where your mouth is and buy one !! .. and then do review and tell us how great it is :)

I was just making people aware of a new product...make up your own mind based on experience with the actual product.....
