BTW Alex, you put "Contest" in the title. Are you giving something away?

CConrad - your boat is absolutely amazing!!! Such detail! A beautiful boat.

Are they really hydraulic cylinders on the rudder?

No, there's a steel cable inside, the cylinders are only for scale detail.

Hi Mitch, found another one of my hiding places huh?
Hey, my Rampage ought to be done early next week so I'll post some better shots of it then. Gotta pick up a few more small items tomorrow when I roll down to the Toledo show.
I loved the wrap on your R-42, too bad that you took it off.

thx, it was a nice wrap but it had to come off to do some glass work to the hull. I intended on putting another one on but, this hull is #8 out the mold and its showing its age. It will crack in different places every race i go to! Its still a screamer though so i hate to put her up to get another you know but, when i do i will put the same wrap back on it. We are headed to Mississippi this weekend for the race, i hope to bring home a couple more trophies for her, She's running really good rt now prob the best this hull has ever run in the time i have had it. This boat loves the Offshore class! Turns on a dime!

I was watching the boat race down there on Me Time Live RC, saw it sitting down by the driver's stand and wondered who it belonged to as I loved the wrap. I didn't know that it was yours until after the race then saw the pix on Jim's.

Hey, the Rampage is nearing completion! I've got a few minor things to do and it'll be ready to hit the water. The prop came in today but Brent send me one tweaked a little different from yours as it looks like he found something a little different from yours, less pitch I think to make it easier for the water up here and easier for the engine to turn.
The 'rigger has been a pain in the rear so far but haven't spent much time with it since I got it back from getting it painted. The boom tubes were loaded with primer and paint so I had to get all of that out (oh joy) and the new JAE adjustable strut has been a royal headache as nothing fits right.

Hey Mitch, it's getting there! She's at around 90%+ right now as I have to do the final tweaking, decals and toss in soe more floatation. The prop was just for setting up the driveline, the good one is in a velvet bag yet!
The JAE gas 'rigger is coming along but has been a pain in the to get back together. I've also worked on 2 other boats this week, my Cat's. Those just got engine swaps.
