thank you for the video, I am very inspired . My project is slowly getting back on track. I tried to findout out some info on the Marine Machine boat but received no response. I hope someday to meet up with Bing to talk to him person. I sure hope he will give me some insight on setups. more pics soon.

These are pics of the boat floating with twin engines light on fuel. I was checking on floating heights. I also took boat for ride with twin engine set up , prop set up was al wrong. I made a special tie bar to run it. It was a very sweet running boat. I haven't got a third motor yet. I got some new props to try out. as soon as we get some more water in my lake to float boat again, I am going to test it out again. I have some more interior pics coming.

Pictures of the boat being put togethor. The engines that I put on the boat were 25" motors & I had to convert them to 20" shafts. The old engine room just has a floor in it right now, not sure on how I am going to put a seating arrangement in it. more pics coming soon.

Found an old picture of the boat when it had the arneson drives on it. I would like any other pictures of the boat if anyone can contribute. Thank you. Craig
