Bob, krpnova on this site, has a two I believe. The TS2 are a fiberglass version of JD's 30" WOF. For the price, you can't beat that boat!

See the posting on Dumas porpoising, we are discussing it there also right now.
Do a search on Tower Hobbies in the upper left corner, they show the boats and you can see the instruction manual.
One of the big wheels at Aquacraft took one to a race in Missouri, a first time boat racer, took 1st place at a district race. That wasn't an easy task as there are some pretty good racers in that area.

Just got a reply back from Hobbico about a question I asked about a ballpark figure on the speed of the NEW AquaCraft Top Speed 2 ARR , with the O.S. .21 XM Marine Outboard this is what they said :

" Thank you for your recent email. Please find listed below the answer
from our Research & Development,

Experienced racers 50+
Beginners 35mph+

Sounds like a winner to me !!
