As most of you know Jimpen and me have been tackling the task of the winter winger redo's. I am not going as far as Jimpen with repainting my boat but I am in the process of rerigging and powder coating. I have decided to buy a nitrous motor for the boat which was formally Andy Ralls winger motor built by "The Bostick". Here are some previous pictures of the boat and pictures of parts and building process. Will keep this thread updated as the process continues.  Enjoy!

Andy's 461,  have alot to live up to with this motor. I got it carb to pan with no nitrous or regulators. Some powdercoating has been done and the manifold is currently at B1 racing getting re plumbed.

Scoop tray built. And a couple other goodies. Still waiting on a completely new ignition system and fuel pump.

I generally prefer multi-color paint schemes, but the blue on this hull looks awesome. 

Good job Dennis.
