If the big "K" works/handles/runs like the "little"K", look out big boys, there is a new "player" on the block.

Default Whatever happened to this boat?

Awesome looking design!

Some one should buy the mold from Kyptonite and build it!

Could there be someone who has some time on his hands?


Just wondering

JB, I thought I understood you, but I've got to reevaluate after that statement...

How's fatherhood treating you?

This boat is owned by a friend of Hot Duck in MD and will be racing in Cambridge MD on Sept 28th with the rest of the OPA fleet.

Ask Waterboy about it. He drove it in a few races, most recently in Atlantic City during the July race. He also had the fun of spinning it out in a turn.

That's one slippery bottom.

It looks (to me anyway) . . . ridiculous. . . . like a CNC machine gone haywire halfway through the job.
I can't believe that each of those steps is serving a specific hydrodynamic function, or that at speed they would ever touch water.
Is it anticipated that this hull will ride level at planing speeds, at WOT?. . . must be some long-ass drives.

Hope it works out. . . . and revolutionizes v-hull design.

T2x - got any more room in that time-capsule?

Default Let me be a bit naive....

The boat looks great to me and the bottom interesting....however, in this day and age of AutoCadd and engineering...let me ask a really dumb ( or maybe not) question. Aren't all these designs able to be modeled and tested "in theory" electronically before they are built, which results in these radical designs? There is no way that a couple guys sit around, drink a few beers, and say "hey bob, why don't we throw a step here and a whooziwhatit there and build a severaly hundred thousand dollar boat"? Right??? Just curious. Again, my background is in aviation and there are certainly common aircraft out there with some funky looking packages that certainly upgrade the aerodynamics for greater speed, range, economy, etc. - that all work well and...were all computer designed. I guess one of the biggest factors that makes me ask this is the way old molds are so valuable and continue to pass from hand to hand. I mean, honestly, as great (and classic) as say, a 41 Apache mold is - why wouldn't someone just start from scratch rather than buy an old mold???
Thanks

Fatherhood is incredible..Joes 18 months and an absolute riot!

About Colonel Potter...even he knew when to put a bad Jeep out of its misery and into the stockpile.

Hope all is well!!!

Hey guys. I will try to snap a few updated pics in the next few days. The boat got the 1/4 canopy windshields, hood scoops and a few other odds and ends over the winter.

Just a heads up, the boat is for sale in the OSO classifieds. He has this boat for sale so that he can buy the race boat from me. I can tell you that Bill is very particular about his stuff. The boat is perfect. As for the spin in NJ, what stepped bottom won't swap ends when pushed too hard? This is one very nice and very fast rig. Come to OC and go for a run.
