    Going as wide as possible and the pond will be 700 feet long.

    Rick, Your builds are going well and it hasn't even snowed yet!

    Bottoms done on both boats... time for transom#2... then on to sealing.. the part i dont like so much.... be better with slow MAAS.. The plans say to mix up 2oz for sealing inside hull... boat# one i got half way before it was setting up... great for sealing JAE... not so much with thunderboat sponsons etc...allmost time for engine-driveline...
    Rick
    What do you guys use thats light to seal the insides of the bottoms of your boats ? joe
    We use the Mas or West system http://www.jamestowndistributors.com...ne=1&page=GRID

    I have to agree with Joe, a properly built boat doesn't need extra strengthening in the engine bay. As for the transom, you could add some glue blocks along the edges to increase the strength in this area.
    Getting back to you question on Z-Poxy, I'll never use it again. I found it to be brittle and not fuel proof when used in a sport 20 last year. I was able to remove all of it with a blunt edged metal bladed spreader and a Monokote heat gun
    We TALKING gas Yes I agree with you with nitro. I got 2 tubs to build because of the Zpoxy. Sig resin is cheap and still works. But I redone my real boats floor with Mas & I have extra Rick
    I will come Sat or Sun.,we still got a shovel for you HJ
    I have a extra .21 and a .12 rigger kit ,that needs to be built. If you want to build. trade the Mas. if you want. Rick
    Also a good looking hull by the way, good job.
    I know we're talking gas and my comment still stands on needing extra strengthening and Zpoxy. Hate to say it but I got back home on Friday night after riding out "Sandy" so, unfortunately, I'm a little too far away to help out

    As I said, I would have used spruce glue blocks as I've seen CF fail in the past, but that's just my opinion and it's your boat

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    Rick. The builds look awesome!! I don't think you can go wrong adding some strength like you are doing. I am thinking more about vibration from the hull slapping the water, blowoffs, and the engine. If you hit someting (like Joe's boat!) all bets are off!!. Nice job. I think Tom is going to be happy with the build. I may have to limit his prop choices to keep him behind me!! Roger C.

    Roger,
    Does this mean Tom will be running gas next year? What does your boat roster look like for racing?

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    Bill, Yes. Most likely Tom will run gas next season, but I am not sure it will be the Thunderboat. There is the thought that some of the Stony Pond critters would like to run an 'outlaw' thunder boat class that allows stock engines with more displacement...like the 28.5's, etc. I was thinking that I would turn my Gas Sport Hydro over to Tom to run in Elmira if he can get there. My thunderboat will remain IMPBA legal. I am planning on running that as well as Gas Mono and Open Rigger with the Cajun Bullet. I would also like to get my Stryker Cat back on the water so I could run Gas Cat again. If I run Nitro, it will only be at Stony Pond. Roger C.

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    Open rigger could be a big class next year! [8D]

    It's hard for me to race more than three boats, so I may drop open mono for open rigger. So that would be 20 tunnel, 20 hydro, and open rigger.

    Smart move in my opinion not mixing disciplines. When I ran mixed classes, it drove me nuts. I will run cat, sport hydro and open rigger. My Microburst mono is benched as I do not want to run four. CD'ing eats up so much of my time so it is a good thing Walt keeps me covered when I am busy.

    Tom and Cindy, thanks for taking video. I took some but ran into problems uploading....

    They moved a lot of dirt. It was a father/son team today running the dozers. A lot more to move still.
