That is a very nice orange, reminds me of Harley Davidson's 2012 color "Tequila sunrise" just not as much flake. Will I see this one Saturday in Cookeville? I know some guys that would love to see this one and your blue one there.

Had both boats out at the IPMS Region 3 event this past weekend; the crowds seemed to like them a lot; not every day you get to see a 72 year old model on display. The "Miss Gold Rush" hydro won the speedboat class, as well as "Best Ship" special awards....I was really surprised by that; as they are so different from the normal entries at IPMS events. The next time the boats will be out in public will be the NNL South in Smyrna this fall........Matt
