Since I am half way round this big world of ours, the latest AMYA version has not reached me yet. I was hoping if anyone had their copy laying around, can someone scan the article on the Seawind and email it. Not looking for the whole magazine, just the Seawind Article. I have emailed numerous times and actually paid them more for the added shipping cost and it still hasn't gotten here.

Thanks,
DW

Something tells me you had a smile from ear to ear running that thing.

If you could figure out how to make it sound like a full size with the pipes and V/8? That would be one nice running and deep sounding toy.

Nice video and looks like you had good weather.

John that is a beauty...
Those geese didn't expect the sneek attack...
A very stable boat...looks like a blast....I dont know what your power is (motor, prop, batt) but it looks perfect for that boat and may be perfect for a crackerbox boat too. Both mine are KIA...smoked due to heat...

Looks like the little boat was stirring up a little maelstrom a couple times. Heh.

Cool boat! Nice job!

I'm in on the next Nirvana regatta. Just finished putting it on the calendar. Luckily, it falls upon a scheduled Friday day off which will make it easier to get there on Friday.

It can lead to a lot of situations....

The guys here know that when I'm multitasking (which I can NOT do) to stay clear...

If it weren't for the rubber baby bumper...it might be ugly...
