    RE: 72 inch 77 lucas oil vee

    I was not able to open your pics,If you want we can just continue what i do right here on your thread until we have a finished boat.OR boats for that matter. On the air out i would cut my holes in the bottom of the rear overhang, if that part stays above water, thats how we do it on our MTI cat. but its high enough not to let water in.

    RE: 72 inch 77 lucas oil vee

    Hi Guy's
    Tom has an interest in molding the boat that I built. so if you would like one. better talk to him. I should be mailing the hull to him this week. we both agree it should be molded. i am going to use some of these for airout. should look ok. there is no room for holes on the overhang do to the rudder cables.

    Those will work, I look forward to doing your boat, you did a great job and i will do my best to keep the bar set high and make this boat available for all to enjoy. not many craftsman left. I'm glad we are making this happen.

    RE: 72 inch 77 lucas oil vee

    real cool, we would have to make that hatch a 2 peice mold, it would have a seam down the midle but would be very cool, and different.when you finish the cat try to make sure there are no negative angles on the hatch, it looks very nice as well.looking forward to jumping on the deep vee, it will be a awesome model.

    RE: 72 inch 77 lucas oil vee

    ss boats will be very good to have running this boat, he does a very good job of finding a good set up.I will not know how much work there is to be done to be ready to pull molds until the boat arrives, but what a great subject, and different then what is out there. it will be a great boat.

    I will be powering with single QD29 Pioneer or K30. Looking to achieive late 50's with a single in your hull. Who knows,may even touch 60! Must say after comparing the many pics of the real hull to your rc hull...your looks very,very close to scale! Do you have an email i can contact you?

    RE: 72 inch 77 lucas oil vee

    Hi Tom
    now that you have the boat what do you think?? got a wild idea. since I pretty much had the motor and hardware installed why not take it for a run and video tape it????[&:] then all of us will know what is coming. just remember if something bad happens. it would take me all winter to make a new hull[>:] so have fun go run it. I want to see it run. anybody else?/ Craig

    the boat looks very nice, im going to jump right in on making it a plug and molds,a complete fiberglass boat will be easier to adjust as needed if we find any bad habits when it gets wet.you are a craftsman for sure, very nice work.
