Ill have to look and see if I still have photos of my AB mongoose. From running nitro back in the early 90s........ to going green now. Done it all....Even the circus used to be nitro. Heres the picco that was in it purchased new in 1991 from Tidewater marine . No nitros? Not hardly......Just progressing with the sport.

Rick Reisinger? He builds some really nice boats. I've known him for many years. Between him and Dan Kramer, we always seem to get into trouble at the Fort Wayne swap meet!

I think that I've seen it a few times at the swap meet. He was all but giving it away as the price he had on it was about what you'd pay for the motor alone.
Rick got heavily into gas boats but now it sounds like he's going back to nitro. I was real close to buying an F-41 Stryker Cat from him. At that time I just wasn't into driving to Fort Wayne to pick it up because of health reasons .

Thats exactly right Ron . I got it for the price the motor was worth alone. Made it all back on the sale of the motor and the pipe. Ty Faust brought the pipe I cant remember who brought the motor. Was going to do a twin 1.00 and couldnt get my hand on another purple head till that one was sold

I will have some other nitro/gas projects in the works that ill share in time along with everything else; In a personally moderated blog.

Hi Ron found a few old photos.

Here is the old Mongoose hull stripped of all her clothes. I sold this hull to Davetheguy on IW who never did a thing with it...... and then I couldn't get it back. I tried. I think Curtis Samuel put this C class hull on the podium in a nats event in Ka. Back in the early 90s with ops power with motor prepped and tub tabled by Kenneth Stone the commodore of the OKC club in the 90's . Kenny is still around but flies scale airplanes now. He also built some a sundowners that set IMPBA records in a outboard riggers back then too. I think its a dead class now. Dont see many outboard riggers these days.... These are the two guys that really got me into more serious boating and ive been at it since then. I miss these two tremendously in the sport. Two very smart individuals and they hipped me to AB back then 25 years ago...... Curtis had one of the first generation Eagles ever made and one of the first to run CMB under AB's advice which was considered a crude engine back then. OPS .90s were the big blocks of choice.


Its too bad I couldnt get it back.It could have stayed my shelf queen if it wasnt going to be run. A piece of history.....

Enjoy
Hugh

I can see Andy's influence in the boat as he was working with them until he came out with his own line of 'riggers.
I've got a boat again that I owned a few times before. I sold it to my running buddy then got it back from him. I then sold it to another guy in the state who then sold it to another one and when he put it up for sale he gave me first shot at it. All that time none of them had done nothing to it except to remove the decals. I went through it during the winter and did what I should have done to it while I owned it the first time.

Yes an awesome rigger in its time. Offset driveline, adjustable sponsons and turn fin.
I learned thru this boat what a conventional heat race set up should look like.

Wish I had it back to go green!!

I turned my brushed greatplanes wildcat into a true wildcat on the water when I put a .16 nitro motor in it.
