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...
What Nate said and these could be used in the future for small section repair. You could also use larger sections like none trip repairs. Sponson tips etc. We have all had to repair sections of boats over the years for one reason or another. Your old sponsons would make great inventory for that kind of thing.
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
It's always a question of $$$$$$$$$$$$$ .
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
The originals were designed and built in 1982 that makes them 37 years old it time for the up dated ones but nobody’s willing to pay for them so they can keep the old style ones
If u dont reuse... I sure could... 😎😎😎
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
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.
Save your money Charlie for now..
See where the sport goes.
Any advantage building (new improved design, lighter, stronger) cost out weigh performance? Money better spent some place else for performance?
We’d like to thank HAPO Community Credit Union for their long-time support of the Tri-City Water Follies as our title sponsor for the airshow and Columbia Cup. HAPO is a proud credit union that puts their members first. Their primary focus is to offer products...
This Memorial Day Weekend, we remember and honor those who have served. We look forward to celebrating our great country this summer when we kick-off the Seafair Festival at our Cancer Care Alliance Summer 4th at Gas Works Park! #seafairissummer
It was difficult day for hydroplane racing fans in the Tri-State, after the board of directors of the Evansville Convention & Visitors Bureau voted not to continue with hydroplane racing during this year’s HydroFest.
Sunday, April 28th, 2019 at 5:34am @ewarren You must be in a dream world. Where do you think these people are going to go with their money and what about the businesses? They will move to avoid the high taxes? Perhaps a reality check is in order.
