The boat looks an awful lot like a 40' Skater. Almost to much alike.

Is this just another splash?

I was down at Edwins shop last month and saw that but he has another one beside it that just came out of the molds very nice.

Goodfella: In the picture titled "rigging begins" What are the clamps that you are using to hold the hoses in place? Do they stick on or are they bolt on?

Good eye Jon. I'm curious now too. Looks like they were just pushed on. Must be a new type of AN fitting.

They look a lot like "Click Bond" products to me.
We use them all the time here at the plant for attaching stuff.

They work great and I would highly recommend them to meet a variety of attaching needs.

Check it out: Click Bonds

Maybe it is because I am using cheap ones or something but all the ones that I have ever used have fallen off. Even on smooth surfaces. I wonder if they have some super bonding crap on there. They would be great for a lot of the work I do as long as I know they will hold well

Jon,
Indeed there are different grades.
We use them in commercial and military aircraft applications as well as for some transportation work we've done. They are great when used within their designed load capacities. Of course, preperation is key. We use them for attaching small items of mass, securing wire and hose runs, etc.

If you can find out who you are using that would be great. Thanks

Jon

Cool

Hey Audiofn,
Those clamps that are holding the fuel lines are
manufactured by a company named Panduit. They
are made of polycarbonate and attach by using
a self taping screw through a hole in the center
that is countersunk. Then a Thomas&Betts tie
wrap holds the hose in place. Grant is trying to
use as much light weight high tech rigging materials
as possible to keep the weight of the boat to a
minimum. We need to try to keep in front of
DRAMBUIE! Also racerXmarine
is correct Edwin is building another one as we speak to
run in the same class. It was purchased by a couple
gentlemen from Puerto Rico. MORE PICTURES TO COME!

SPONSORSHIP INQUERIES ARE GLADLY ACCEPTED!
