: I origanally was going to build a hydroplane but the TNT and the squirt have caught my eye. I see alot of people praising the TNT but have saw nothing on the squirt. Does anyone know if the squirt has the speed of the TNT? I would be happy if the thing would go around 30mph. If anyone has more info please let me know. I like the styling of the squirt more than the TNT.
Update on Squirt:
30 mph is exactly where my Squirt tops out. Using
a 1967 Mercury 20 hp. outboard. The same boat with
a new prop rated 18 or 20 hp motor would probably
run circles around it. But in a 10 ft boat, 30
feels like 50. In spite of my still not completely
solved the handling problems, it has been tremendous
fun. A litle more power would make it easier to
get my big kids on plane on their kneeboard.
