At least now I know if I ever decide to take down my garage I can use the trusses to make all new structural members of my boat. Does home depot sell stainless nails?

Hey now, it's nice to see a hull that weighs less than the power package.

This boat used to be at the lake we go to. UGLY. I will promise you with everything I have this boat doesnt run anywhere close to 80. The guy also told us it is all balsa wood.

It almost looks to me that it was a "plug" that some mis-guided individual got ahold of and rigged.......sort of.

I would imagine with a weight of 1300 pounds, plus another 1000 for the engine/drive? Hit a wave and it breaks in two pieces. A bit stern heavy maybe? How hard can you push the envelope to get that kind of HP out of that engine?

Default Bladerunner??

Looks like the plug for the original Bladerunner made in New Zealand. The newer bladerunners use a redesigned stepped hull and actually are quite fast. But yes, the ebay sales pitch is absolute Bullshi$$.

That is what I was thinking. Imagine if some unsuspecting guy buys that!

Whoever built this "Thing" should go back to what they were doing in a previous life and leave performance boat design and building to more knowledgeable and capable individuals and companies!
PS- We got a new big block coming out soon at 1200HP built completely out of impregnated balsa wood!

Best Regards,
Ray @ Raylar
Well the block is yellow and it does have aluminum valve covers = 1500 that is what we do to get 1500 hp.
How does the ballsa get pregnated I think I saw that on the discover me channel I have read that is where the power cums from?
Its over 5000 on e bay wholly crap hope this dosent come to LOTO!!!
