If your looking for something along those lines, the Pro Boat Blackjack is a great option.

Your boats look great thanks for the advise I have recently been looking at the Venom either the Seagad or the King of Shaves. Any input on the Venom? I just don't like the look of the Blackjack but having a clutch and waterpump would be a nice feature.

Dan is working on a 70" Skater model, and currently sells a really nice 84" apache..

The 92" Cat in this thread is the biggest on the market.

They are a bit slow, but deffinetly the best looking on the market in the world of ready to runs.

They use good parts, and the construction is also good.

Sorry for the late reply. For the money it is a great boat. I think in stock trim with li-po's it runs a solid 35-37mph. The handling isn't the greatest, but i'm going to be trying out some new drive/rudder hardware to see if that helps. Overall though, it's a fun little boat.

I'm still tempted to do something with the Jet Cat turbine.

Is the pic in white before you painted it?

My buddy Robert has one of those hulls.

I think PI could be right. I think the bum owns that and Blackhawk Hobbies. Hope he has gone out of business so that he can't screw anyone else.

Yes it was white.

That hull of yours is sweet!
