    The title says it. Tom has in stock a new Dyne 20 that has been modified to mount three big blocks on the transom.

    He also has an 18 that looks very much like RiverRat's boat.

    I thought you would like to know.

    Do you know if that's the same 18 that he had since think tank this spring? Or did he sell that one and rebuild another already?

    Sounds like a pretty cool thing to be able to put on a dyne. Does anyone have any pictures? If not could anyone get some ?? would love to see how it looks.

    Exactly,

    That is why I posted this. I am not going to quote a price without Tom's permission, but I can tell you it was VERY attractive. His contact information is at the top of this forum area. If we can't sell one 18 a year, I would not blame him for not building another one on spec.

    Yes it will mount three big blocks on transom. TOM and myself worked hand and hand together to change the transom to mount 3 big blocks with out any mod. to the boat. I WILL TRY TO HAVE A PICTURE BY MID WEEK TO SHOW THE CHANGE.

    Welcome to Hydrodyners Rick. It is nice to have someone here that actually puts these things together. I am sure you will get a few questions.

    It was nice to meet you too.

    If someone was to put three big blocks on the back of the dyne I wonder how much weight would have to be put up front? Also how big would the gas tank be?
