Default Post pics of ur boats

Boating is my dad's hobby. Im just the driver when racing. Here are his fountains 56". One is stock with a zenoah and the other is a Quickdraw HT engine. They race in the saltwater mostly.

Love the fountains! And that Hydro is sick. Nice looking boat for sure! Makes me wish I would have kept my fountain and my Miss. Budweiser I had back in the day.

Mine are not very exciting :





















Apart maybe this one :


And the last one, not from the boat itself, but from my cellphone that was sticked on the boat, with the GPS software running to measure the max speed :



Kyosho Twinstorm full stock... for the moment.

Yep that is a Phil Thomas Sport 45, That is my fav hull. I had gassers for years but a couple years back I got bit by the electric bug and now that is all I own. Run times are lower but the instans speed and torque of the electric motors are insane.
Here is some vid of it from last year. This year I plan to run it at 70mph for sure...as long as it stays on the water

Where are you guys buying your boats at? Been so long since I was in the market for a boat (Bought my Miss Budweiser from Tower Hobbies years and years ago) but the place I bought my old fountains is long gone.
