Well I want to build either or both of them. I have the plans for the cruise missle and the study plans for the Bandido. I also want to finish the one I'm working on first. I really like the Cruise Missle so I think you should build that one so I can follow in your foot steps. I think the Bandido would be more cost effective as you need to keep the missle really light to be fast. I was looking at aluminum sbc blocks and a surface piecing drive for the missle. I think the cost would be high and the learning curve steep for the missle. But nobody else has one so you would be the first.
I think i am going to go ahead and start the cruise missle in the next month. I will be using jet drives along with two small block chevys. I like a challenge and i really like this boat. I have three years to complete it since my youngest will be off to college around then. We plan to relocate close to the ocean so i am going to give it a go.
