Default rc everingham/KOS/GTX

hi all,

i am starting this post to keep you all update on my 3 projects............ first KOS was back in the water today after 6 months in dry dock,the engine was being used in the everingham ,ran ok but suffied a long crack in the side after losing out to a small FE boat.... owell race tape to the rescue....

the everingham came back from the paint shop yesterday.... looks very very nice... next the airbrush shop so hopefully be done in the week or so.

the GTX is very slow .. only got 1 cowl lock fitted so far.


enjoy
Todd

Hi all,

Finely got the everingham back from the sign writers and it's been clear coated again, looks very very good i must say .
Next is black gelcoating the inside should realy high light everything inside and then start bolting it back together.

hope you all like it

Todd

Very jealous of all that nice warm sunshine you have now on that side of the pond. All our lakes and ponds are well frozen over now. Thanks for the videos.

Hi Todd, nice colour choice...I like!!

Is this one of the genuine Everingham hulls or from Brian at X-cell products?

Keep up the good work.

Yeah! certainly looks like you are having plenty of fun and getting heaps of air.

Had one of these hulls from Brian with metal flake deck, but sold it....D'oh!.... will be trying to get another one soon.

Boat looks fantastic Todd.

I have yet to see the clips or big pics (such an agonizingly slow connection here at the moment). Didnt get too close to Wagga this time. Looking forward to seeing more of her!!

hi all,

i got this trailer painted this morning , been working on it for last few days..... had to get it painted early.... was 42c today... very hot !!!! 2 more days of it come ...... am going to use it to take my fleet of boats etc to the lake .

It is going to have solar panel,to charge a deep cycle battery to run a 12v-240v inverter of it,just working out the finer details. Fitting a air compressor,lights, laptop and maybe i small fridge and a 3mx3m gazebo, got it for xmas.....very cool.. Hope to start to get the sheeting done next weekend.

Hope you all like

Thanks

Todd

Yeah that was Richard, he is the Insane boat dealer over here. He can show you around on a club day but he races 8-10 classes so on race days he is a little busy! Practice June 11. racing the 12th and 13th. Would be good to see you there, ask for Mike the yank or look for the PM Boats trailer, home made too!
