That's a nice size for a hydro. Have you had one on the water. She must run great?

Ive run the original prototype at our nationals,i then made a new plug for the mold and made a few small changes,the test hull ran well,i will try and get some video over the next few weeks,this hull is a modded version of one of my other hulls i build,as it was getting to much lift at speeds over 112kph,this new hull sorted the extra lift issues.

I like the speed numbers. With what motor was that? What hardware are you using. I have my own machine shop so I make all my own hardware. Would you have setup instructions with the boat?

the motors we were using were quickdraws,ive just modded a zenoah and changed the motors over,the boat in this thread will be running a high rev quickdraw and should have some more accurate speeds in the next week or so,i make my own hardware also,i run a carbonfibre strut and a few other bits i make,i will provide setup instructions,engine location,etc
heres a pic of my strut

That is a nice hull! My wife was sitting next to me when I was looking at the pix; told me that with the all the vents etc it looked like a Transfomer to her! I'd take that as a compliment! Do you have a price, and will it be available stateside???

hi there,
thanks for the comments,
with the current conversion rates it would be $430.00 us dollars + freight,this would include a white gelcoat hull,cowl,back hatch,radio box with tray and threaded inserts,transom/turnfin doubler glassed in,engine rails are part of the hull,each hull is also numbered.
additional cowls are $35.00 us dollars each.
Im looking into freight options as i have other inquires overseas at present.
cheers mike:)
