Nice condition Fonda on eBay

Looks in great condition for the age would make a nice classic
Could be good fun on a lake or river if there are any left that you can use a powerboat on

Hi

Newbie question.... how will this handle swell / sea?

How will it handle 500 - 800 bhp?

Will it make a suitable classic race boat?

What kind of speed will I get out of it with a power upgrade?

Sorry for the stupid questions.....

if you are looking for a nice project hull, the guys building the new martian on here had an old martian hull for sale, not sure if they still have it or not search thro some old threads and you will find it

just had a look at this on ebay, the rover lump looks clean, apart from the cables need tidying up, doesnt look like someone has just grabbed an old greasy rover lump and slung it in, looks like it could be a fair old project for someone
