I bought the rainbow boat from Dave Chandler's stepmom after his dad passed on. I'm suprised it was a ski race boat as it has 29 gears in a C-500? Our red one has 47's, it was originally Howard Haig's ski race boat, we bought from John Cummings.

I'm pretty sure I went for a ride in that boat.. It was a friend of Tony Scarlotta's. I think his name was Denny?

I see the guy in Parker every now and again.. Nice guy.

Yes, Bob, aka Riverkid, I do have a camera. Just no ability to move the photos from it to the computer:D

There's a bunch more "progress" photos over in the Dana Boats section. This boat is destined to be orange and white, but the recession seems to be stalling that...

These shots were taken at an Elsinore test run back in November. The motley crew along with are Atomickitn, Forensic and Jason from Dana.

Have you run the boat since November?

RD
Nope, it hasn't touched water since:eek: I'll hook up with Bobby after these rains and pick the boat up, along with all the stuff removed during the swap. Then we'll get back out for another test with the wing you fabbed. I'll let you know the results, but I'm already guessing they'll be much better than without.

Wayne's never in a hurry, RD. LOL:D
Hurrying is about the last thing I want to do anymore, given last year's experiences. From now on, I'm Capt. Kool, yes, kool with a "K". Just as an example, I would post in the "home project / remodel" section, but I don't think RD will have this site up long enough to handle updates over the next 30 years:D

Make sure you run it with and without the wing so you have a baseline. :)

Looking forward to the next update!

One thing you have to remember is back in the mid 80s ski race boats that put out more than 900hp were monsters. My dad had the Brummett that Denny built after he blew the side out of his Schiada and that boat had 32s in it.

I remember Howards boat well. It was one of my favorite boats when it was new. I didn't know that you had bought it :thumbsup

Dave,

I think you are talking about Denny Valdez and his is a 20' different boat than Jim's.

Here's our 09 21RC on it's way to Lee's shop for upholstery woodwork. It's going to have a full engine hatch, rear bench seat and two front bucket seats, then it goes back to Parker to pull the motor and all to get everything polished and anodized



Here's our blue/white 21RC on our lake in Alaska. Engine hatch wasn't on for the photo.

Code:
the interior is what I think FrzJim is going for
06Schiada, is that a twin turbo motor lurking under your hatch? I'm hoping our hatch is low like that, wolf in sheeps clothing.

This is 06schiada's TT thats under his hatch. Sits a little lower than us carb guys.


And this is my TT under my hatch. This is as low profile as your gonna get with a carb setup.

What kind of hinges are those on there? I want to continue to run a hatch if I get to keep mine and I don't like the curent setup.
