the second and third vids were of a different boat mate. the little blue thing is still almost there it just needs one more resin coat and a little tweaking. The new lake is one i go to which is 2 kilometers from the one you saw us at and is usually too windy to even put a yacht onto, there is a little footy boat down the bottom of that lake, from when we first tested it but yesterday there was no wind whtsoever and the fountains had not been turned on just yet (the big black pontoons in the middle of the lake)

the new boat is one of these

but with a drivetrain upgrade
-new motor coupling
-new driveshaft .98 flex with a 1/8 stub shaft to give a better prop range to use
-metal x430 prop

and here are my beauties

the one in front is the rebuilt Dictator and I'm seriously thinking about swapping over the motors as the dictator is a lighter hull by 300grams as it is built with milli ply rather than a very thick fiberglass hull and also it is slightly wider between the sponsons the ripmax boat is 56mm between the sponsons and the dictator is 90mm between the sponsons

but i will keep you updated as to what i shall be doing

ENJOY :-))
