Andy. I agree we must crawl before we can walk but we have been crawling for a while now, maba has been racing and the rcaa has been setting speed records. Its time to pick up this hobby and teach it how to walk. In my eyes the best way to get this hobby walking is to have events in various public places so the kids and adults can come out and see the boats run and maybe eventually they will start working on there own boats. At past races that I have attended the spectator turn out has always been good. I'm sure that some of the people that witnessed airboats running by skilled divers felt like they had to have one. Thats where manufacturers come in, if they are attending a race and a manufacturer has a both set up, the people that were impressed with the boats my buy one or at least get info on how to contact them in the future. Its a win for everyone the racers,the spectators, and manufacturers.
pinky d brain. It would be nice if the water prop guys would except us, but for now they will not. after we show them how an organized airboat race is ran and the crowds it draws, then they may take notice.
