Default NQD weird pictures

Take a quick look at this ad.
http://tampa.craigslist.org/hdo/tag/1132766836.html
I am not interested in buying it. I'd just like to ask if anyone else thinks there's something wrong with these pictures!?!?! Look at the first one, the NQD hydro appears to me 3 feet long or so??? Photoshop or what. It almost can't be real, the boat isn't even close to being that large.

Or maybe I'm going crazy and the pictures are real. Just curious what you think.

It is 27.5" long. Look at the 6" floor tiles it is a little longer than four.
Looks to be correct little more than two feet or 27.5" to be exact.

I discovered the problem. A year or two ago, I bought one of these NQD's new and it looked identical to the one in the picture. Now I see that there is an 18" one and a 27.5" one thanks to you guys mentioning that it is manufactured in that size. Oops[X(]

Yea, I will have to admit the picture of the guy holding it does look larger than say like a Supervee27 at the same 27".
Another vote for little guy.

That's a great point, I had one of them too (sold now) and you're right, a SV27 doesn't seem this big
Or does it?

So the mystery lives on...

This site says the NQD red hydro is 30" long lol

This is a practical joke or something

looking at the 2 pictures, maybe the same guy holding the thing but not the same boats.

pic 1 is correct size,

pic 2 isn't (thats the size of a gas powered Hydro) well in the 40 inches plus.

The pic with the larger boat was a joke created by foodstick. A good one too.

If you completely ignore the enlarged picture picture, the question is whether or not the origional picture from the ad is bogus.

I guess foodstick must have been sleeping on the 1st of April.

the first pic seems to be in the 27 to 30" inch range.

Sorry guys..it was like someone hung a fastball out there..I had to swing. no harm mean't. I actually didn't think anyone would believe it after looking at the pictures on the first link. I was tempted to go bigger but the picture quality was so low the boat would have looked like it was drawn on a old nintendo NES system !

You know what? The boat looks in good shape...and for $50, is the size really an issue? Looks like a fun boat no matter what the size is!

NQD's are more like walmart pool toys and not really hobby quality at all. Although the hulls do look sharp IMO.

Also, a new one costs around $50.

Just saying.

NQD makes two different sizes of this thing. One is listed at around 24 inches and the other around 30 inches. Both are dogs. You can see them both on Ebay.
