Boaters are nice people.
Hi Scorp,

That hull should run very nice, it can take a lot of power.

In the third picture are two items I would leave off, untill they are really, really needed (which would mean you wouldn't be able to get the set-up right, which I find hard to imagine...).

A nice twin set-up (a.O.) here:

Now if your hull would just arrive I'd have something to look at while waiting for paint to cure on mine.

Sorry to break this to you, but it wont turn well without a rudder and the stinger supports the 3" of flexshaft hangin' out the back.

When I get DHL from HK it winds up being delivered by USPS.
Speaking of Hobby King... did you get your Turnigy servos yet? I wasn't that thrilled with mine. One of them stopped working almost instantly so I'm kind of afraid to even use the other one.

Oh...............so those arent the two items?

You'll be impressed to know that i AM going to run it with no fins or tabs first!!! I really would like to have a boat without all the extra weight/drag hangin' off the back. This may be the one that runs well without it!!

Only concern i have is that the hull is a bit narrow............

Hi Scorp,

It is narrow, most set-ups I've seen have high revs and a medium propsize.
Or a twin set-up.

Man!!!! This thing is skinny!! But hard as a rock all over......................looks a little rough at the seams, but overall nicely done.

Didint know "Daffodil" was a color option, thought i was getting white.

The motor is absolutely huge in the hull...................this may be more of a 1717 boat, i could throw the 5692 in Vader and the 1717 in here.......................hmmm. But I really want this to be brutally fast....................I'll see how it all fits.
