Default Retro Racer

Here's a neat little concept from across the sea.

What do you think?

I have seen a guy on Lake Winni in NH around the Moultenborough area with a hydro that looks similar to the one in the second pic. One morning when it was like glass out, he was ripping back and forth. I have no idea how fast but it looked like he was haulin As*! Very cool!

Yes, that looks like it. My family is on Long Island on the side facing Rattlesanke Island and we have seen him come out of the Harilla Landing spot. It is definetly a cool boat!

I actually met you a couple of summers ago at the Naswa. We had the 37 outerlimits with the purple drives and kept it on the idlewild side of Cow Island.

Now we have a 28 powerplay and a little 22 velocity that is stored at Harilla.

Cant wait for summer!
