AMERICAN Spirit U50 3 Wing

A bit of history.

This hull started life in 1989 as SPEED SPORTS U19 with the team colors of lime green & white.
It made a 4th place showing at the Tri-Cities and a 5th place at the Gold Cup in San Diego, becoming the best new team for 1989. The hull was extensively modified using state-of-the-art technology for the start of the 1990 season.
The 1/5 as it is painted in the American Spipit colors, was the owners choice. The full size hydro never raced in these colors.

Here are some spicifications on the 1/5 Hydro.

Length:-183cm (72") Beam:-100cm (39 1/2").
Power by:- 36cc 6.5 h.p Mathe marine petrol engine with custom made header and tuned pipe.
Construction:- Foam core with marine plywood outer.
This craft has been scratch built from scaled up plans.
We have yet to put this hull through the speed traps.

Here are some photos of AMERICAN Spirit.
