    Default The Official Kyle's Hondo Shovel Nose Thread

    Kyles been burning some midnight oil getting this Hondo Shovel Nose ready for Spring. The build has been a SANO custom effort. Dam near all the hardware is custom. I got just a couple of pics from him to post. The stringers set-up is intense. There will be a lot more custom deals added. I'm just getting the thread started
    I hope he adds a bunch more pics. He's done a awesome job of fabricating this boat. I cant wait to drive eeerrrr I mean see him drive it



    Looks like a simple Blower Belt tensioner Puley. But its a 3 piece double bearing deal he made. Purdy Sweet


    Oh yea Its a V- Drive too
    Good Job Bro
    Takin it home

    I asked him about the carpet......He said" If it don't leak who caresZ". There is no question that he likes to build stuff. When you see the front of the engine ( jet boat guys a motor is what you clip on the back of your boat) it looks sick. I hope I fit in that skinny seat he got.....I mean him..Lookin good Kyle......
