These are some "prototype" photos. Production Vac-U-Crackers™ have a bronze-colored rudder with a stainless steel blade.

Nice stainless steel "double-shark fin" turn fin. Notice I eliminated a molded skeg resulting in a very flat hull bottom. This boat is painted with Krylon Fusion paint. Instead of a skeg, the stern tube is thick brass that is strong enough to resist impact damage. Oilite® sleeve bearings support a stainless 1/8" shaft. The bow has a laser-cut 3/32" thick motor mount that will not flex in rough seas. A 1/8" plywood motor mount base will be used in the final model instead of this PVC sheet one shown.

The stern is flat, allowing you to locate your battery and hardware anywhere you wish. The transom is reinforced with 1/8" PVC sheet. The floor also reinforces the lower hull giving great strength yet remaining lightweight. I didn't get the paint finished in time for the Chattanooga Invitational. Had to remove the red decals as they were not compatible with the hatch tape I used. This is Casey's kit. Note the smooth deck. I didn't have the helmet molds completed until the day before the Chattanooga Invitational. As a result, many of the prototypes have missing heads.

Doug built the "Moov Over". He is hoping Chick Filet will sponsor him... Most of the prototypes were built with water-cooling. Chris built this one. Note the spark plug wires. The kit comes with a choice of 7 different air cleaners for the motor. Mike made the Curb Side. He added header pipes to the motor.

Here are a few passes to show how little of the boat actually stays in contact with the water. We are still working on the best trim tab for the hull. I won the oval course without trim tabs. However, I was upside down on the M course.
