New F1 tunnel

This is my latest project 44" F1 inboard
Based around previous design with some minor changes and all new looks and new fake OB aswell ,improved center pod and canopy not just for looks but for improved room around the engine and airflow and easier to install and work on
Some hydro and aero dynamics changes have been made for improved handling and more stable flight when at full throttle and rougher windier and rougher conditions
Hull and OB constructed

Man, that looks mean! Awesome work as usual.

Now Daz, if you notice, my post count has made 1000. Do I get this tunnel as a reward?

Nice work, It nice to see that there are still some scratch builder that don't work with kits.

Thanks Harv
I like to design and build from scratch that way it's all my own work plus the challenge of building a hull that performs and stands out from the rest

I have always thought your craftsmanship to be of high quality. And this build proves that you have only gotten better during my absence from this site. Keep up the good work Daz, you are helping to keep the art of boat building alive. Great job!!
