Anybody know what this is supposed to be?

Obviously it's a motorized paint punt..... "you hold the roller while I goose the throttle...."

Makes painting those big Navy ships easier...

The first jet ski, before the jet. :D

I like the idea of this thread. I have a lot of old boat parts that maybe someone can identify. Maybe a "Whatzit?" thread.
The paint punt has the engine in the bow?
Strange one.
Kind Regards,

Surely it's the new fangled version of the Hydroplane? Lie flat facing the engine, put it into reverse and away you go?

Nope,but it must work cause he is doing something similar with the picnic table behind.Mudnut.

I would guess it's a fishing platform of some kind, and probably named the m/v White Trash, or possibly m/v Bass Ackward.

Here's a power boat that heads out in the Sound on occasion. It turns a lot of heads as it goes by.

Yeaaah and I bet the owner makes comments like, "wow honey, dosen't this thing turn heads, we must have a real looker of a boat"

Isn't RAVEN a NZ brand of boat???

Lancerbye 08-07-2007 11:44

Actually the first one is a half B ass boat and the second one just goes to prove that some people should not be allowed to play with tools around boats. LOL

What - front wheel drive is not safer on boats too? Could this be a case of bow-thruster envy??

Waterborn Hummer?

Hummer sales attempt.
:cool: They are trying to get other people than the ones out here that have more money than brains to buy Hummers. I considered an H3 out in the middle East where it was cheaper but after I tested it out all I could say was. What a piece of crap.:D
