Randy, unfortunately I never took any video of the boat running. I was too busy testing to be honest, and never really thought of it. I hadn't planned on producing the hulls to sell, this just kind of happened. I am sending one to Scott and one to Will for them to run. Hopefully one of them can take some video and give good feedback. I myself really love the boat. I used to run a Cajun Bullet, which I also liked a lot, and I can say I like this one better. I took it to London this summer at the Northern Nats and really beat up on it, staying off the starts just to stay behind in the rough stuff and play catch-up just to see what it could handle and I was really satisfied with the performance and handling. I was running against some strong boats, including the Grim Reaper, a Rico and an Eagle SGX so it was no give-away. I'm not gonna claim it was faster than the others, it wasn't, but it held it's own and that made me a very happy guy! I'm hoping Scott and Will will be able to further tweak the setup to get the most out of the boat. These two guys are seasoned rigger guys. I, like you, have to wait a few months still before I can get back at it unfortunately! During my testing this summer, my Warpath ran 69-72 mph in heat race trim and finished all heats I raced it in except for one when I made a dumb move because of a dead boat in front of me. Live and learn!

So that's the production Warpath :woohoo: .... remember making comment of all the influences noted when you had first shared the design last year.
If hull has the increased stability of running rear shoes while having a bit more footprint up front than the MW ? How can it not be a great heat racing combo !!

Really looking forward to something new and not so cookie cutter typical for my single engine racer .... 2011 indeed should be a banner year for a lot of new hull designs hitting the water.

Thank you Scott...appreciate it coming from you!

Turns out it's very easy to build accurately for a rigger. Making it so and keeping it structurally strong was a little bit of a challenge, but I'm really happy with the way it turns out. I've built 3 of the kits so far and of course learned a few things and adjusted along the way. The kits that are being produces will yield very nice and strong outriggers.
