    Seems they drag race these in Thailand & other places in Asia. Anyone ever build one? Have been searching all over the web & just lucky to find a few pic`s. It`s a need for speed type thing, father - son project, all direction appreciated. Thanks, Phil

    Keith, although not very much room in there, I would definatley have a kill switch in there. Kevlar cut suit prob. wouldnt be a bad idea either, Helmet. Definately not a leisure boat, all out racing, saftey always first, especially the, or my Jacksy! Phil

    Thanks Zed, seems to be all i`m finding on the net, you tube & a few pics. Have not seen the bottom of these boats, i can tell from the inside that it is a flat bottom, seems a stepped hull in front, just wondering if possibly air entrapment hull for speeds being reached? Thanks Phil
