    rebuilding an aftermarket hull 1100 raider

    hi every one ,I recently started work on a raider i bought as a total basket case. Ive been collecting parts on ebay to build the motor .
    I started by spliting the deck off the hull to do some repairs and reinforcing.
    I came across someone that knows the history of it,It used to be a race boat , a copy of a riva hull ,lots of caron,kevlar and foam core .

    anywho I cant find a decent exhaust for the modified 63m.even a good stocker will do for starters.

    so if theres any out there let me know .

    Ive been taking pics along the way and will try to add them later.

    heres a couple of pics so far .spent half a day with the grinder striping flowcoat and bits of rough csm .
    still got a way to go,you can start to see the devinicell core material.
    on the bottom pic shows the exhaust parts I have ,need everything forward of that.
    I intend to rebuild and repair with more carbon and glass .
    Its already a very light hull so I will keep it that way just strengthen a couple of spots.and make it very neat and reliable
    spent quite a few years as a fg laminator doing everything from aircraft parts to re building uranium processing plant equipment to laying up 70ft boats so hopefull it should turn out nice.
    couple things seem a bit odd ,the hood has a second built in fuel tank.
    might come in handy fo extra long rides but I imagine the c of g would suck.
    man I would have bought all darthraiders stuff If I was over there.
    planing to have this finished around christmas time (aussie summer)

    here you can see the foam core in a bulk head,60% of the bottom is foam core really light an stiff, overall boat was really well made but its carrying a few battle scars and a couple of rough repairs I intend to redo.
