Did they have a B tunnel class?? That would be a "mod" 20 tunnel class.

Is it just me or does the guy on the left look kinda like the talking snowman from "Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer? Here's the cover to the album for comparison

A stock TS2/3 cowl the mounting lip pitches up quite a bit.

For a TS3 thats a heck of a deal, Considering they want 75 bucks for just the replacement cowl!
VS1 is at 119.97, But fair warning there are two transom failures that I know of so,
Check them seams if ya order one..........

Hi Gene, I didn't order the TS3. Great price, but I'm going to focus on one boat for now (the VS1 I'm building.)

Hi guys,

A work-related tradeshow weeklong trip, then a fun surf trip to Mexico and a logo-design special I've been running in my personal business, have made my "catch-up-to-do-list" as big as Texas. So the sanded and sealed boat has been on the shelf and the parts in a box.

I'm finally starting to see some things done. I'm hoping to be back to normal by next week and continue working on the boat. I'll have an update soon.

Oh by the way, I'm writing an RC Boats article for my boating site, FloatWays.com - It be nice if some of you give it a once over before I publish it. Any volunteers?

-Danny
