Default VIDEO OF FIRST BUILD/ A SCRATCH BUILD AT THAT

over the past few weeks i dicided to build an air boat. weilding a os .46 engine this little boat cruises, its 24 inches long, 14.5 high (top of rudder), and 11 inches at its widest in the middle. on the rear rudder i added a small down foil to help keep the nose of the boat in the water. (i porpises pretty badly without it, it still does however not nearly as bad) the hull of the boat is foam, mdf and ply wood and fiberglass. ill try to get a video up soon, lemme know what you think so far with the pis.

Looks like a very nice running boat. I assume you moved the tank?
