    Florida checkmate check in

    Lake Jackson, Sebring is the name, quite a bit of just off the lake good food, no real on the lake commercial, My dock is big enough for 3 or 4 to tie up, whenever covid crap is over :devil:

    Florida checkmate check in

    Yeh we've got some longer runs here. The world record straigtaway boat speed runs were done here and boat drag racing. On a calm day, it's glass and you can go wide open. Lake is shallow though (25ft) so there can be a chop from wind. Craig Arfons was killed here at over 300mph.

    Wow.....bein a two stroke jetski guy, I always think about a conversion, but darned little room. Honestly a 60 merc would likely be perfect. The stern wave on stopping a 225 from a flank bell would be a sinker :)

    The big 242 project.

    Oke as the newby I've read several threads here including you bidding on playmate/fantasy/paradise/st martin molds. Are these those, or a different miniboat? I'd really be interested in a another mini if you turn one out, or even just turn out all the pieces, I can do final. I restore...

    Here's a pic. Nothing fancy, mrs and me working on a paint scheme for it. Anyone want a nice running 93 Force 50 with p/TnT I'm lookin to trade up to a 60. Mid FL preferred. https://photos.app.goo.gl/dTyBBCJCaFAJxNjg7

    Heyo - '93 Clone owner

    Just found the forum, have had the Fantasy version of the clone for about 15 years, guess I got a good hull, have pounded the hell out of it and no issues. 50 hp force (hate force but it came on it), 14p, 34 mph by gps.
