    New Website !! New Section !! Out with the old and in with the "current".

    Per Dave's request, we'll be posting up "Shop Shots" and other Eliminator activities on a (hopefully) daily basis.

    Stay Tuned :thumbsup

    That's too bad, it was a pretty invaluable source of information and current used Eliminator pricing...:(

    Hopefully it got archived and not just wiped..:eek

    And..uhh...it is still the same old RDP for the moment..:D

    What ever happened to the old school 18ft boat that one of the guys down there was re doing for himself. Did I miss the completed project somewhere?

    I’ll be watching that. I would imagine a 22 w/a 400 should run right around 100? Could handle most Havasu days and run all the way up to Davis Damn. Can’t wait!

    You'd better crack the whip on the mold prep folks then.

    The hull is ready, the deck you need to OK and it's done tomorrow.

    Another day after that and it's in the laminators hands.
