    Default Need a pic

    there was a pic floating around of someone weight their boat and it came in at just under or a little bit over 300 lbs on the scale, anyone have that link or pic? I can't find it. I am being told I am full of it because they "cannot make a fiberglass boat weight 300 lbs" LoL

    My Brother-in-law, Blown Income, has a texas tunnel that weighed around 235lbs when the first owner owned it, but it blew the transome out it when it caught a wake wrong. After some fiberglass reinforcing they figure the boat weighs right around 280-300lbs.

    The boat use to be a ex-drag boat before they converted it to a river boat.

    This is the boat you are thinking of. It belongs to Mike Miller (Red Rocket) and is Carbon Fiber.
