It may be a dum question but why has it got a huge hole in it at the back? ???
Other than that it looks good, need to try and get some pix up of my handy work.

Hi fludey,

If you pronounce your name floody? that almost answers your question.

It is a flood chamber, which enables the boat to self right if it flips.

Hi Mike. (and Jenny)

I like the Volante, always did like those hulls. Will you be in Bridlington for the Nationals this month? (21/22nd)We have 108 entries with more expected so it shouild be an excellent weekend's racing.
Cheers,
Ian.

DAMN!! I Like That Idea, I've Never Even Heard Of Anything Like That, Like Fludey I'm new To Boats But That's the Greatest Idea I've Ever Seen/Heard of For An RC Boat, Saves A Tonne On Diver Expenses If Ye Can't Swim :D
