I would like to build one some day. I want a fully modded QD and twin screws. Do you have a full size drag boat?

Here are several pictures of R/C drag boats. These have been designed and built in fiberglass by a member and friend of mine. He is one of the few members here onRCU that builds his own hulls. Many threads onDana's work throughout the forums. I have no doubt he will chime in here.

Yeah, thats an old Dumas 36 inch Atlas van lines U-71 hull, sport 40. Only thing missing is the front and rear cowl. I have one that still in the box that I plan on building this summer.
heres some pics of one thats complete.
Your drag boat project should run like a rigger in the straights, but slow her down in the turns, or at least add a larger turn fin to keep from hooking if you wish, but for just straights, no turn fin needed.
