IMHO, no matter what you choose at least make a good splash so if you crash again or one falls apart you would have a starting point. All the mods that are required to make a 4.1 flow sponson you would be ahead. The recoveries alone weigh a ton because of the deeper recovery area mod. Also I’m sure you could improve on the structure. Maybe both! Make a tool, bond on the old ones and this off season build a new set... all it takes is time! Good luck U-27 team.
Pull some molds and build new ones.. if it means taking more time I would still do it.. once complete you will have a completely new boat and the ability to pull more parts if needed...
Cal because you are the best part of the boat don't forget a seat.
If you choose to go with new ones, that means you will just have to make another boat for these...
Black Sheep Racing Would that be putting new bark on an old tree, or old bark on a new tree???
Put those on a party barge and biuld new
I would reuse if possible and I guess it would also depends on money how much would it cost to just build new ones
Are structurally sound and there's no delamination I'd use them
Time to use today's technology, make the boat robotic or should I say radio control and let the driver drive from the start finish line. Take boat racing to the next level, and race like they do with the RC's. Lol
build new keep for spares..
Reuse.and the way your luck is better make plugs to.;) i might want to bye a pair 🙂
Reuse.. they’re already broken in obviously stress tested! In a sense they are seasoned.. seasoned is better
Build New, reuse old as spares
Depends on how these were built if this is a better construction then keep these but if I remember right these have been rebuilt plenty of times so it may be time to build new ones of course use these for the 2019 season and put on the new ones next off season
looking good and any sponsors yet
It's always a question of $$$$$$$$$$$$$ .
New is better lighter and faster
The sponsors are not that old. If they are sound and light I would reuse. Maybe some upgrades.
Charlie, as a hydroplane fan that knows very little about the inner workings of an unlimited hydroplane.
I just want to thank you for your passion for the sport, I always enjoy watching your boats race and wish you the best of luck this year.
If they are in good shape, re-use them. Unless you want to build new ones and use these as spares. I think that I would re-use them though.
Any advantage building (new improved design, lighter, stronger) cost out weigh performance? Money better spent some place else for performance?
What would be the advantages new sponsons would provide???
Build new keep the old ones in stock just in case......
IMHO, I would make molds of the sponsors so you can start a new boat for next year.
This is such great news. My father Buddy Waller owned the property for many years, where he started Waller’s Meter. He converted the old Meese office to his home & I lived there until my former husband Robert Feltner & I renovated the former Jaycee clubhouse where we lived for 2 years.
We are all very fond of the property and look forward to seeing it transformed.
Congrats to Andrew and Tawana Thomas and the Visit Madison Board and Jefferson County Board of Tourism and the Stellar team for a great step forward.
This is great news for the City of Madison. I have hoped to see this property preserved since I moved back here in 1980. Congratulations to Ron Bateman and his associates.
Game changer for Madison. The future is bright.
wonderful to idea! can’t wait to see it finished 🙂
There have been plans in the past to relativize this property. Here’s hoping it will happen this time.
My family lived across the street from the old mill many years. Would love to see this place shining again.
I LOVE this announcement! My husband and I are in Madison a lot throughout the year, and have been sad to see this property empty and unloved. So excited to see the revitalization! Can't wait to stay there!!!❤❤❤❤
Wonderful news!! What a fantastic addition to our community.
So happy about this!! I love Madison and all the people who see what a special place we have here!!!
I love this! I love to visit Madison and this will be wonderful for this beautiful building to come alive!!
This is awesome news for Madison and the riverfront.
Great news and better that Marriott is participating. Top notch facility coming to Madison, can't wait.
Wonderful news. Love seeing the old timers renewed and have life breathed back into them.
Thank you Rob Bateman and all involved in keeping our beautiful town alive and prosperous ❤️❤️❤️
Revitalization is the future of downtown Madison, I’ve seen several attempts at this particular piece of property. I hope this time , the project is seen through til the completion.
Yay! It’s happening. That is awesome news. Congratulations to the Bateman family and to the City of Madison.
This is huge! Ann and I are smiling ear to ear.
Too too awesome will help property value too
Great job City of Madison!

My Oh My, sending a big congratulations out to another local 11! An honor well deserved
There may have been bigger winners and bigger superstars in Seattle history, but there will never be a more loved athlete in our city’s history than Edgar Martinez
I am from Chicago area and a lifelong Cubs fan but since moving out here 17 years ago I have become a Mariners fan as well and had the pleasure of seeing this extra special hitter play and I am SO HAPPY EDGAR IS IN THE HALL OF FAME!!!!!!!! YOU DESERVE IT EDGAR! A fearsome hitter no pitcher ever wanted to face!
Crying happy tears!!! Today there IS crying in Baseball! Congrats Edgar!!
Hands shaking, tears streaming down my face at work-- scheduled my entire day around this. EDGAR!!!!!!!!!! <3 <3 Its about damn time. Congratulations !!!!!!
Finally Edgar gets his due. The man, the legend one of the greatest player to ever wear a Mariners uniform. Every Mariners fan is proud of you. A great honor to you and your family. Let the countdown to Cooperstown begin. Let the chant Edgar begin loud and proud for all the world to hear. Look out Cooperstown Edgar is bring the bat light with him to light the way. Edgar, Edgar,Edgar,Edgar,Edgar! Go Mariners !!!!
Biggest win we’re gonna get this year!!!!!

Disgraceful it took until the last year of eligibility for the BBWAA to get their heads out of their butts.
Can’t wait for the game that they honor him at T-Mobile Park. EDGARRRRRRRRRR. EDGARRRRRRRRR
It’s about time, congratulations Edgar, complete vindication for Edgar Martinez and the entire American league

Edgar, Griffey, Vizquel, Reynolds, Buhner...these were my favorite players growing up...I’m so happy Edgar made the Hall...what an accomplishment!
Until Curt Schilling is in, every baseball fan should boycott the HOF, because it belittles the efforts of all the great players past and present.

The Whiskey Myers track "Stone" sets the stage for the explosive Yellowstone season finale Wednesday at 10/9c on Paramount Network.
I absolutely love this show and can't wait for season 2. I'm kevin costner fan and have been since dances with wolves
I have loved every minute of this show! Great acting, good stories, beautiful scenery, and awesome music. Ca 't wait for Season 2!
I love this show so much I don't think I can wait months for season 2! Can I come out & be a grunt on the set while you're filming it? 😉
We love this show, sad the season finale is on Wednesday, but glad there is going to be a season two!
Just got my copy of Whiskey Myers "Mud." Working on plans and gearing up for the "season finale" party with friends.
Fastest 8 hours I’ve ever spent, wheeeww. Hate that it’s going off but so glad it will be back for another season! Loved, loved, loved it!
I’m in love with Yellowstone! Awesome cast! Too bad this is the end of season 1, wish it would just become a series on tv all the time, no end! And fell in love with this Whiskey Myers, can’t wait to download all his songs!
My favorite song and my favorite show! I’m going to miss this show so much after Wednesday night.
Can’t wait for Season 2.
Great job producers!
Danna Rodman I know you like Yellowstone. Whiskey Myers is one of my fave bands. Worth going to see them if they ever get close to you up there, especially if they do an acoustic show!
i look at these beautiful homes,,,,and Places,,,and wish i would have moved out of these mountains years ago. I love this show,,and ALL of the actors/actresses....just Awesome.
Is that Whiskey Myers playing the song in the very beginning of the show?? I love it--what's the name of it and what album is it??
I'm not sure my heart can take the shock that is sure to come in Wednesday's season finale, but I can't wait!
Whiskey Myer's and this Great "Greek Tragedy in The Wild West" What an Explosive Combination of The Best Entertainment of T.V. There is Nothing to compare!!!
Omg! Best Show Ever! Kevin Costner is crazy hot and amazing! Cast is awesome! The reining horses and riders are real! Ryan Bingham is awesome and even sings 2 of his songs! I’m completely addicted to this show and I can not wait for Season 2! 🙈Please hurry!! 🙏🏻❤️
I wonder if Kevin Costner's character will die in the season finale? I wonder what kind of cliff hanger there will be if any??
Yellowstone is the best show this year. Need more for next season. Thank You to All of you who made this Show so Watchable 🤠 with Drama and Excitement.
Love the music choices for the show as much as I love the show itself..Whiskey Myers, Whitey Morgan.. just need some Cody Jinks 😎
I hate that Season 1 is coming to an end already BUT am soooooo glad to know it has been renewed for Season 2 ... will be so hard waiting for it’s return. 😔
I love this show. It is very addicting. I can't wait till the next one. You get to know each character full circle. Please keep going.
Finally a TV show worth nothing short of awesome. Not some stupid reality show but a show about real people doing real stuff. No CGI or anything like that. Watch the credits of the final episode and it talks about the making and all of sesaon 2. Great show!!
Casey Clare whenever we first started talking I started watching this show. Oddly enough there’s a character in the show named Casey and he became my favorite
Jackie Wirt this show just gets better and better. Nothing else like it out there. No other show comes even close.
This Is An Amazing Show. The cowboys all look way too clean though. Dirty their clothes up a bit more next season. Looks more authentic. Everybody looks too crisp, except sis, lol.
Dang it!! I hope they replay the episodes .. totally missed first season !! And I don’t want to watch the finale!!!!😭😭😭😭
Awesome riveting heart beating series. I was hoping for a cowboy series and received more. I love every character and the parts they play and they are truly believable! Have 1 more to go on this season and I know it will be cliff hanger. Waiting till next year will be hard. Great job!!
