This is the AquaCraft VS1 Competition Wood Tunnel Hull Boat Kit. Mike "Grimracer" Zaborowski developed the prototype for the VS1" 1999. At the 2000 IMPBA Internats, the design quickly scored its first championship win. Rather than rush the model into kit form, Mike took the time necessary to produce a top-quality tunnel hull that performed up to his highest expectations. The resulting kit used two construction techniques: wood over foam for the center section and framework with sheeting for the sponsons.
That winning formula is also found on this unprecedented, "pro-built" ARR version from AquaCraft. After only 6-8 hours of assembly, it delivers the same competitive muscle that has earned over ten national championships to date!
- Hull: Exceptional ARR quality continues this tunnel hull's winning ways. The sponsons are built-up wood; the hull center section, lightweight wood-over-foam construction. Both resist warping and are finished" high-gloss clearcoat.
- Radio Box: The water-tight radio box with clear lid protects your equipment and permits quick inspection without disassembly. Pull-pull cables, steering cable output guide and antenna mount assembly are included with the VS1" its premium hardware package.
