Billybobs boat,s bought and sank lol...so I purchased the critters from billybob awhile back....I pulled the nitro from the white one and installed some electros........came in a lil heavy on the scales but hey,,,,,it still floated so I whipped up a rudder and I was was ready to crisson the maiden voyage. Out to the canal I went "my only source of water in the vasinidy" put her in and pored the power on.......Worked great. I went right, I jagged left, and another right. I did a beautiful turn to the left and was coming back to me when I thought i'd try reverse. Um.... ya went good for a second then the bumb of the boat drooped and she started taking on huge amounts of water. Long story short she went straight to the bottom with no survivors....lol so the next plan is to get her lighted up with some brushless stuff and lipo's. So stay tunned for that one. And as you can see.....Weedeator power for the 45 incher.....weeeee ha thanks for looking

Don't feel that...It was all a new experience for me from the get go. I do have about 5 or 6 Hulls scratch built all in different stages of construction in my shop. Plans are to make another puddle jumper one day, ( I have all the patterns and stuff still). That was one of them builds I really got upset at when the paint went all crazy, I tried to get it cleaned up and it all turned too goo. I let it get the better of me no doubt. I encourage making one though...Just take the time with it.....Especially the paint. The lil white one sits on a shelf waiting for the proper gear to make it run, and I gave the 45 incher to a friend that really wanted to clean it up and make it go. Boats are fun to scratch build, Lots going on with them and challenging.

Back in the saddle my friends.
Being broke brings on the necessity to build cheaply.
And so...I revisited an old build and something I wanted to try again.
If your familiar with this thread, you'll know I goofed up a paint job on the previous boat. Upsetting it was to take it all the way and have the last coat of paint go CRAZY on me.

Any who, I drug out the ole hand drawn blue prints and had at it again.
A few changes were made in rib construction.
But ...I have a running boat again and it's ready for body work.
Here is some pics of where it's at currently.
