    Default Dual motor/jet aluminum Tunnel Boat

    I am looking for either pictures or for the guy that owns this boat. I met him in Needles last summer 07. It is an all aluminum 23 foot jet boat with 2 small blocks and 2 jets. It was made by a north west race boat manufacturer. From what he said only 1 was built. I never got the chance to look at it up close just ran with him up river and he stopped by my boat at wipe off. Any info about this boat is appreciated!

    The boat was orginally owned by Craig Roberts of Lewiston, ID. It was built by Rob at Eagle Marine in Red Deer, Alberta.It would run over 70 mph with bone stock 350's, cool boat.

    so why not an alum. 19' Tunnel?... single motor, single jet config. to come out and hit hard on the lower west coast? i think you could possible kill a market down here, especially with a hull that worked?
    I see nothing but benefit with that!
    Sandbars,rockbars, logs etc...am i overlooking any problems?
    Whats the cost of a 19' mod v that you guys run in the north?
    Judging by the cost of glass hulls in the south, you could probably have these manufacturers beat with a better product. If it actually worked!
    Im sure this issue has been beaten into the ground before.
