What type of Hull, Prop & Power plant you run poll

Post by HuntingBigun » Thu Oct 08, 2009 10:07 pm

Pick the 3 best choices for your boat, this is not a poll for what brand we run just type, over 4000 of us be interesting to see the numbers. The max for the poll is 10 options so no way to get them all. Have fun this is not a c/m versus a/c thread done did that so if you want to play in that thread go to LS Kissimmee

Carmotor, Fiberglass Step Hull, and 3 Blade Composite. I don't have a ride boat right now, just a hot rod.
