    Did anyone take any pictures of Tom's booth at Think Tank this year. I am interested in how the 18' looked in particular. If someone has a photo please post it for us.

    Thanks,

    No photo, but it looked eerily familiar to something I've seen before.

    looked familiar to what????? Remember that is the uniqueness of Hydrodynes. Every one is going to be different. Please explain.

    ding ding ding! We have a winnner! Yup, looked a lot like the one I enjoy quite often. Some subtle changes, but still the same shiny new dyne.

    I heard a rumor that the 18 footer from that show is up North in Wisconsin somewhere on a new trailer, at a very attractive price. ( Something I heard...could just be some B.S.)

    Amazing what can be done when everyone puts their heads together. Does anyone know what he decided to charge for a blank new 18 shell at think tank?

    If I remember correctly, he was still charging the same $9500 that he charged me. He aslo had a shiny new trailer under it that looked fairly similar to what I had spec'd myself. Not sure what that particular combo was going for though.

    I'd like to have a new 20' Tom Miller Hydrodyne made and set up for a twin rig and in the blue/red stripe design of the original Hydrodynes. I'd do the interior and rigging.

    No. I'll never sell my 18, although informally it is for sale for $1 million. Wire transfers only.

    I'm talking about a second boat - a 20' designed to look like an older 18. I might even have the current 20' mold's instrument panel cut off and would have a "pod" from the Hydrodyne 18 deck mold glassed in its place. It will have a closed bow with front fuel tanks and an adjustable water balast system up front (sorry, Jim, I just can't get over the idea of doing something like that).

    Why build such a boat? Well, why not?

    My next project. It will happen. And it will be documented here for your entertainment.

    Stay tuned. Don't tell my wife.
