Default 1/5 Scale Miss Budweiser, 73" Anyone Interested ?

Hello, I am in the process of building a 1/5 scale 73" Miss Budweiser Unlimited Hydroplane. I'm just wondering if anyone else would be interested in this. Theres no other hydro in R/C this large that I know of. I'm not a business yet, but i'm wondering if people would be interested in these if I were to start building them.

Thanks,
Tim

A G260 would work, with a full mod package. Umi, are you referring to the MHZ turbine? It only has slightly more torque than the full blown 260. A turbine just wouldn't sound right in a boat powered by a Rolls Merlin
WolfEnterprises, see my post in the gas boat section

...and considering the size, where would you be able to run the thing? Certainly would rule-out our local 'duck pond'.

There's been larger. They brought one to the Toledo show a few years back that had to be hauled in on a full-sized boat trailer with a Kawasaki 550cc Jet-Ski engine for power.
Isn't this in the wrong place? You might want me to move it to the Gas boat forum. This area is more for scale ships.
