Insane F1 Tunnel Hull

Insane Boats spent two years to perfect this design. Here are the details:

This 49 outboard hull has two options:

  • Yellow and black - the Champ Boat cowl style
  • White - old school Seabold style

The newly designed lower unit cables last between 400-500 laps without issue.

  • 29.5 stock motor with a 1048 carburetor and tune pipe
  • Speeds between 57-60 mph

Interesting how the prop is so far away from the transom with this design of OB.

It seems to work though. I've seen the video of the boat and it seems to be one of the best handling and fastest 1/4-scale gas OB tunnels that I've seen running so far. The black and yellow one is Jeff Michaud's boat in action.

The hull has been proven for a while. It's that lower leg and drive cable that's taken Jeff so long to get right.
Jeff sold insane !!
