I don't know if people are still racing boats behind the Hygenic store in Kahulu. Try calling Hobbietat, 808 737-9582, and ask them.

They were still there a few months ago when we drove by. Occasionally I see a boat in the pond at Ala Moana but it is pretty rare these days.

There's a small group of guys that were running Saturdays at Ala Moana, mostly from what I seen they were outboards.

Just got home from ala moana lagoon
I couldn't wait any longer
later today I picked up a venom battery at trcc 5000 nihm for 68 dollars
then stop by costco pick up some AA batteries
15 bucks for like so much batteries lol
by the time I get to ala moana was already 7pm lol
good thing was still bright
well im happy with my bristolbay
some guys complain about noise from the prop
I didnt have any problems except the steering
need to adjust it a little
but I didnt bring any tools except my fishing pole
I was there running it scale speed and some burst speed
two hours and I still have lots of juice on this venom

its funny how the tourists wanted to take pix of the boat lol
there were like 10 or more of them asking me if they could take a pix
happy to oblige ofcourse

cant wait to go back there again
looks so peaceful running it on the water




Its hard to take a pix with a cp while playin lol I coukd of zoom it but I wanted the background






Needs a brighter spot light or search light
im thinking of using a flashlight
and hide the batteries on the cabin
