: cadillac made boats!

Hahaha, just kidding guys!:)
i am a major Cadillac fan!. but i also professionally race fast electric rc boats.
don't be fooled, these are no toy boats, the V hull here runs a good 60 mph, and the rigger ( the red boat) will run in excess of 75-80 mph
and they are both under 30 inches long, i have about 1400 dollar+ invested in each boat.
I designed the rigger, from cad work and such. I also did the graphics by hand!(kinda)
being a cad guy i copied the logo onto my page and then with my tools in cad i copied the logo and crest, then i threw it on my laser cutter and cut it!
i have a immense amount of hours in the script and logo. ( all done by hand)
even the 32V northstar is drawn ( not font)
I also have a 2 food large Cadillac crest that i am putting in the back window of my cars. :)

Nobody is saying anything because they're thunderstruck by the craftsmanship.

Very nice. My eight year old made one for the cub scout rain gutter regatta just like it. His pine wood derby car also had a wreath and crest as well.

That is a super cool boat. My dad has been building remote control airplanes since he was 15 now he is 86 now. He still has about 10 planes in his shop. The problem is that almost all of his flying buddies his has died, they did not walk everyday like my dad did as a postman. The other day dad told me not to ask him about stuff that happened over 60 years ago. LOL I know quality when I see it and I see it in your boat. I know it's not a cheap hobby either. You have a cool boat and hobby. TexasCadillac

its a great spot

There is an open stretch of water a couple of miles long in the river that flows through town just below the powerplant. The kids get out and waterski in -40F just for the hell of it.
