    Carbon Raider bought from Canada many years ago?

    Hey all, back in the day me and a buddy used to buy old race boats and part them out. We sold most of the parts to the States (we live near Totonto Canada) We sold a full Carbon Raider hull to a guy who was going to put a GP1200 motor in it. I think he had to mod the top deck to accept the pipes. Just wondering if anyone knows of that boat, Id love to see pictures of it after it was done.

    Sounds like Bigraider in Texas, who eventually sold it to Pilo704 I think in New Jersey somewhere.

    Hahaa! I am sorry Mark I did in deed forget. Darth built the hull then I remember a couple days on the phone with you with those triples. Yeah that was some build. I remember you had made some custom brackets on there just to get those triples to fit on that monster. Mark going to call you later in the week need to catch up. Been spending too much time building skis and not enough time catching up.

    Well....it was a heavy modded hul...as Mark said...."plain old 94 raider" I guess is a wee bit of an understatement. The outside shell is what I mean was a "plain old 94 raider" ...inside...well it was one of a kind =0)

    A one of a kind reshaped bottom and intake along with the special hull Mod for the pipe clearence were just a start to the 'plain raider'... DARTHRAIDER had progressed upto that point of the future BLUEANGEL's build..

    BIGRAIDER purchased the ski and brought it to its final creation as the BLUEANGLE (prob. the fastest a RAIDER will ever go...)
    There is quite a few threads here and RIVA on its build, if your interested and have about 5 solid days to read and months to digest..

    PILO904 at last read has taken the motor and pump out and has been working on dropping it into his GP.. (did I read somewhere the 'angle is in another's hands now??)
