    Default Underdog

    Just finished, resto on the original Underdog Boat, well after months of hard work its finally finished and ready to get wet. Some of us and the new owner (rivertime 247) will be at river this weekend to see if the old boat can live up to its reputation.




    Boat should be a nice addition to the lower part of the river. Look out Tom here comes Scott

    Default Forgot

    I almost forgot the old time driver to go along with Underdog. I bet it has been 25+ years since you where sitting in that boat.


    I love the looks of this boat with the red hardware

    Skom, they have down tubes in them that pick up the liquid n2 off the bottom of the bottle. never seen one mounted like that.

    Again, looks awesome guys. Great job. Lots of history there.

    We were worried that the G forces would force liquid away from pick up tube also. We were told no problem, we shall see this weekend

    There's a reason why....

    But if they checked and were told otherwise .... okay. I hope it has a high flow valve and I would run at least a -6 line on the system. The big problem is going to be; how many run's will they get out of it ? After 3 full passes it will more than likey unload.

    Edit: If that's a 15 lb bottle the pick up tube will stay loaded much, much longer so not so big a deal. But it still won't get the number of passes out of it if it were not mounted at 90* .

    Hopefully someone know's a lot more than I do, but that is really not that hard sometimes

    Damn nice looking boat..... great job.

    Was wondering the same thing.

    The boat looks good, should be a runner. If it was posted somewhere else, I missed it, but what kind of power does it have?
