no, everything is mounted in the wider, thiner boat the same way it was before just in case something happens and the first boat breaks off or something, i can drive the boat back and posibly use it to retreive the other one and get it all back without any damage to the pricy parts! i'm just going to add a little weight in the front to keep it down.

Maybe i should get a lot of lights and put then in the front car with their battery! lol

Not to be morbid, but what popped into my head when I saw the new boat was , challeneger. 450hp in a dual hulled radio shack boat, id put a ziplock baggy or a couple empty water bottles full of air in it so it wont sink and you can get most of it back lol. a fishing rod with a cats bean bag toy on the end of the line always worked for getting my boats back.

I really hope you used some sort of precision tool to make sure the front half is on straight. If it's not you will only have more problems than before.

yea, i was planning on putting a lot of stuff in it like foam and or bottles to keep it up if it flies apart. but, at the least bit of a sign or feeling of it doing something bad, i'm slowing down or stopping it!

yea, i mesured everything with a steel ruller and marked with my rimming tool and when i mounted everything, i looked over everything and it was strait and did line up as far as i could tell.
