Yes it was white.

That hull of yours is sweet!
LOL! Yup, must be a PI. Chris Rabito is the duche bag you are thinking of. He is still screwing people all the time.

I think I know of about $15,000 in rip offs he did to lots of my friends.

He's a total looser.

Your boat looks good though.

How's it run?

Tom,
You obviously know Chris. He got me so pissed off that I wanted to make a visit to New Orleans, but my wife put and end to that thought. There was a roomer at one time that Mark McMannus was going to have something done about Chris still using the Apache name on his hull. For yours, Dan at Bonzi and everyone else in that business I hope Chris doesn't mess things up for ya.

This was my first build and I had a great time doing it. It only ran one time so far and for a short time. That motor is so cool and sounds so pissed off. That motor has so much torque that it twisted the drive cable into a knot. I need to support the tube that the cable run in so that it won't happen again. It may also end up on the shelf so that I take everything out and build a V to match my Cig. Like to put mini # 6 on this next one.

another funny story about Chris. I'm not naming anyone, but I also had my wife order a second hull so that this unnamed business could splash Chris' hull. I bet you already know the results... Never received it.

Some very cool RC boats here! These Are 3 Blackjack 55's that we painted up for a client so he could have races off the back of his 200' yacht. The boats have thier special place in the engine room. They use them more than I tought, we have to ship them a box of replacement parts every couple of months.
