There's a BIG rivalry going on this weekend, the U of M - OSU game. Scalpers are getting up to $2,000.00 for a ticket to the game!
I was thinknig of wearing my Western Michigan University hat to the Toledo show as the University of Toledo plays their games inside the Seagate Center and these teams are rivals also but I didn't want ot get my butt kicked there! I wore my RCU hat instead but still worried about a butt-kicking.
WW, I think that I have a picture of you with your teeth in!

I just saw on another site where the Whiplash 20 was converted to an electric and was the first non-outrigger hydro to break the 100 MPH barrier! That has to say something for its stability.

OK, seeing how we got WAY off topic in here, we just got some bad news. Former coach of U of M, bo Schembeckler (sp.) just passed away after a news conference this morning. www.woodtv.com has the latest news on it.

coz i'm not sure when i can paint it coz i do no how, some part of the frame is still visible when it's done, check out the first pic i posted the wood looks so pale..and just making sure the it's double sealing, for the finale sealing i'll use the epoxy...no probs with glue sticking though.

Did you put foam in the front sponsons?? Looks like I can see a tube running into the sponson area...are the fuel tanks in there, or is that an engine cooling tube?
