Looks great. I'm looking forward to seeing it this year. That was a lot of work. Post some pictures of the motor set up when you can.

My insurance agent owns a big Revo named Mr Cig with tripps......its for sale.....not sure if its the boat your talking about.......I could ask him....................doug

thanks pmt, i actualy got the pleasure of speakin to craig of dragon powerboats via e-mail and got the full story on the boat.
update: we got the props back from throttle-up ready for the larger shafts, perfect job just as suspected would be . we sent a pvc mock up for the center exhaust to stainless marine (the center exhaust will exit the sides), and are adding flared turn downs on the rear exhaust to run the exhaust into the water while not on plane to keep noise down. the engines were all built, except the molds to the m3 procharger carburetor enclosure were ruined we found out, but the guy from procharger did a great job gettin us three out of the new molds asap, and even guarnteed if they werent ready by a certain date that procharged would make the molds themselves. my dad dropped off the enclosures to burke today, so i outta be able to get a pic of all three of the motors done next weekend. i dont no if i already said this, but the drives are all on, ready to go, now ready to dyno one of the mills soon, and start cuttin holes fer exhaust. im ready for summer! almost...

also just curious...the original name of the boat was Attack, which actualy is a cool name. and papi dont wanna namethe boat 2hot4u cuse he thniks itll piss peeps off... adn wants to keep it as 2hot....which makes no sense at all spellin it with a 2 instead of too cuse it has 3 engines so do you think it would look better as it is, or with a big ATTACK in white on each side with maybe a mouth in the front like on older military fighters? thanks
