The boat wasnt sunk for long....they had it up and running in the next race 2 or 3 weeks later.

This boat has all the heavy duty hardware required to race. All you need is a motor. If you buy a pleasure boat, you will have to dump big bucks into it to withstand racing. A few more bucks spent up front will save you a whole lot more down the road. Trust me ...Ive been there.

My advice...If you cant afford to do it right, dont do it, until you are ready.

You cant race on a shoe string budget. Anyone who has tried, will tell you the same thing. Maybe you can buy a seat in someone elses boat to start.
