    Default Who is making new gullwings?

    My damn comp crashed, I used to have a site bookmarked that was making new gullwing hulls, I'd like to talk to them about a new hull, but I can't for the life of me recall who it is?

    You can hit up RiverDad on the boards here, his name is Jason. He's getting ready to pop a new gullwing out of the mold.

    When we picked up our Cheyenne from Ervin Capps a couple years ago, he was just finishing a set of molds for a 19 Gullwing for RPM Marine in Texas. Check it out at the bottom of the page here: http://www.youngbloodjetboats.com/Rwrite.htm

    I found the site, it only took me 1/2 the night!
    http://bigdaddyspeed.com/


    EDIT: In all my searching I did learn that Gullwing hulls are basically jet bass boats, Jim Youngblood also designed them to race circles!

    " "California style" jetboat. This low profile jetboat was manufactured as a custom lake boat, race boat and even a few jet "bass boats". "

    "Circle racers such as Sonny, Earl, Jim Youngblood and Roger Finney (Roger was the all time “K-Jet” Champion) always ran the drags as well and were usually in the number one or two slots. It was during this 1974/1975 period that the TX-19 was developed. It was designed to be a circle boat with excellent turning ability and less tendency to drop the bow in a turn. The cathedral bottom gave it full length lift so you could really side slide it with power and there was plenty of bow lift to keep the bow up even at circle turns as slow as 50 mph. Add power and drive much like dirt track driving for those who are familiar."

    I've wondered why I haven't seen a GW circle boat. I know six-oh-nines GW boat was an ex-circle boat. If I was a racer that's the way I'd go. Maybe the lack of free-board is an issue ?
