    RE: gas tunnel hull

    Zippkits has a gas OB tunnel among others. Aeromarine's is so-so. Woodstuff is a good one but expensive and if you can find one.
    The is one made overseas called an Ossi or something similar that not only runs good but looks good too.

    RE: gas tunnel hull

    hey doom, the lines on most of the boats i build just kind a happen like that as i cut the foam, i use 1" foam layers so as you cut and carve the shape, gives good lines to mesure off of as you cut. as far as the design of them, i just look around these sites for pixs & info, you can find alot of nice pix to scale from

    RE: gas tunnel hull

    how do you keep the sponsons the same size? at the price of the lower unit for a outboard could i just use a cat setup? or would that not work? i have a MRP electric tunnel hull, and wonder how i could just scale it up for a gas tunnel?

    Insane Boats has a tunnel boat. I've seen it run. With a 26 it will run, but with a 29, it will RUN.
