  1. GSX315v2 Sport 20/ P-FE Hydroplane Kit

    GSX315v2 Sport 20/ P-FE Hydroplane Kit

    Welcome to the future of Sport Hydroplane racing. The all new ML Boatworks GSX315v2 Sport 20/ P-FE Hydroplane is one..no, make that TWO impressive machines. After many months of design, two dedicated hull designs were complete...a nitro version, and an FE version. Specific platforms to fit your demands! Who else other than ML Boatworks would you expect this kind of flexibility?
    The final product left no stone un-turned, and the way this boat runs shows it paid off! This boat is ready to hit the race course and stake its claim. This boat is fast and stable not only in calm water, but also in rough and windy conditions. With this 31" hydroplane- just pull the trigger, hold it wide open!

    The V2 advantage. Released 3/26/2018, this new Version 2 model has a few updates that will make a great hull, even better. The first change was both sponsons were widened from top, to bottom. This width change, will not only add stability in the turns under high power, but it adds a wider ride pad for better hull flotation for heavy battery setups while the hull is sitting dead still in the water. With a wider ride pad, comes more surface area. This surface area can scrub speed potential...but, we have a fix for that. The new ride surface is now a shingled sponson, which will create better air turbulence under the ride pad, and keep the hull free from the water at speed. These changes make a great design, even better. No photos are uploaded yet of these changes, but will be shown when available.

    A few options, and features of the GSX315v2:

    This hull uses new Truss Frame Technology, or TFT, available no where else but ML Boatworks. What is TFT you ask? It is an aircraft ply-lite ply-aircraft ply truss system, allowing the inner "forward to aft" structural frames to be widened out to around 6.5" vs. the competitions 4" opening, while increasing overall rigidity . This extra width allows for access behind the 4" wide, 1/4" thick built-in engine rails WITHOUT the need to remove the deck sheeting. This means no need to stress about mounting your motor in the wrong position and not being able to access blind nuts after your model is built. It means a wider radio box area, and also more usable transom width to push the rudder over an inch wider to the right (starboard side) getting it even more in line with the turn fin. Locating the rudder this far over increases stability in the turns around a race course, and stabilizes emergency left hand turning. These benefits will astound builders who have dealt with 4" openings in the past.

    With all the above features, you might say WOW...But not yet. This kit also has the option of 2 different center sections; A nitro center, or the FE center. Each center section has the cross member frames and engine rails located to the optimal location to properly fit your nitro engine, or the bulky lipo packs/ motor required to power this platform. This makes the boat perfectly fit your needs! NO one else in the industry does it like this...Neither wood kits, nor prebuilt fiberglass hulls...The GSX315v2 is the only one! Congratulate yourself, you just found Innovation at its finest!

    With its rock solid platform, you will be able to harness all the available power from your wildest .21 Nitro or 4s FE power plants. This boat is sized properly for the IMPBA and NAMBA sport 20 hydroplane classes, and it also fits the P FE power classes. Available as a complete kit with all wood frames, outside sheeting, and basswood sticks.

    With two optional center sections, and the choice of a canopy laid up in White Gel Coated fiberglass:

  2. GSX338v2 Sport 20/ P-FE Hydroplane Kit

    GSX338v2 Sport 20/ P-FE Hydroplane Kit

    Welcome to the future of Sport Hydroplane racing. The all new ML Boatworks GSX338v2 Sport 20/ P-FE Hydroplane is one impressive machine. After many months of design this larger version sport 20 hull is complete. This particular size GSX is designed around the FE market, with no current plans to offer this one as a nitro version as the GSX315v2 will handle your Nitro needs. This hull is designed to handle the larger Full- P FE power on the market. Who else other than ML Boatworks would you expect this kind of size flexibility?
    The final product left no stone un-turned, and the way this boat runs shows it paid off! This boat is ready to hit the race course and stake its claim. This boat is fast and stable not only in calm water, but also in rough and windy conditions. With this 33.8" hydroplane- just pull the trigger, hold it wide open!

  3. GSX380v2 Sport 40/ Q-FE Hydroplane Kit

    GSX380v2 Sport 40/ Q-FE Hydroplane Kit

    Welcome to the future of Sport Hydroplane racing. The all new ML Boatworks GSX380v2 Sport 40/ Q-FE Hydroplane is one..no, make that TWO impressive machines. After many months of design, two dedicated hull designs were complete...a nitro version, and an FE version. Specific platforms to fit your demands! Who else other than ML Boatworks would you expect this kind of flexibility?
    The final product left no stone un-turned, and the way this boat runs shows it paid off! This boat is ready to hit the race course and stake its claim. This boat is fast and stable not only in calm water, but also in rough and windy conditions. With this 38" hydroplane- just pull the trigger, hold it wide open!

    The V2 advantage. Released 3/12/2018, this new Version 2 model has a few updates that will make a great hull, even better. The first change was both sponsons were widened from top, to bottom. This width change, will not only add stability in the turns under high power, but it adds a wider ride pad for better hull flotation for heavy battery setups while the hull is sitting dead still in the water. The first version did not like to much weight in the front as it wanted to submarine. A lot of customers like 8s setups, and that is where the sponsons struggled to keep buoyant at a stand still. This update will correct those issues for the people who feel 6s lipo is not enough! With a wider ride pad, comes more surface area. This surface area can scrub speed potential...but, we have a fix for that. The new ride surface is now a shingled sponson, which will create better air turbulence under the ride pad, and keep the hull free from the water at speed. These changes make a great design, even better. No photos are uploaded yet of these changes, but will be shown when available.

    A few options, and features of the GSX380v2:

    This hull uses new Truss Frame Technology, or TFT, available no where else but ML Boatworks. What is TFT you ask? It is an aircraft ply-lite ply-aircraft ply truss system, allowing the inner "forward to aft" structural frames to be widened out to around 8" vs. the competitions 5" opening, while increasing overall rigidity . This extra width allows for access behind the 5" wide, 1/4" thick built-in engine rails WITHOUT the need to remove the deck sheeting. This means no need to stress about mounting your motor in the wrong position and not being able to access blind nuts after your model is built. It means a wider radio box area, and also more usable transom width to push the rudder over an inch wider to the right (starboard side) getting it even more in line with the turn fin. Locating the rudder this far over increases stability in the turns around a race course, and stabilizes emergency left hand turning. These benefits will astound builders who have dealt with 5" openings in the past.

    With all the above features, you might say WOW...But not yet. This kit also has the option of 2 different center sections; A nitro center, or the FE center. Each center section has the cross member frames and engine rails located to the optimal location to properly fit your nitro engine, or the bulky lipo packs/ motor required to power this platform. This makes the boat perfectly fit your needs! NO one else in the industry does it like this...Neither wood kits, nor prebuilt fiberglass hulls...The GSX380v2 is the only one! Congratulate yourself, you just found Innovation at its finest!

    With its rock solid platform, you will be able to harness all the available power from your wildest .45 Nitro or 6s FE power plants. This boat is sized properly for the IMPBA and NAMBA sport 40 hydroplane classes, and it also fits the Q FE power classes. Available as a complete kit with all wood frames, outside sheeting, and basswood sticks.

    With two optional center sections, comes two choices of cowlings. Both are laid up in White Gel Coated fiberglass:

    1) FE Only Cowling- a shorter cowl, with tall Turbine style intake scoop. The FE kit required to use this canopy has the top deck opening between the rear hatch, and cowling further forward. This cowling is not recommended for use on the Nitro version of this hull as it will not clear the tuned pipe. (This cowl is shown in the pictures on the blue GSX380).

    2) Nitro Only/ Optional FE Cowling- a longer cowling, with a lower profile, and lower scoop. This cowling was ment to be for the nitro version of the GSX380, but it turned out so nice, we decided to offer the proper deck adjustments needed to use with the FE version of the GSX380. The deck opening between the rear hatch and cowling is further back to accommodate this cowling. (This cowling is pictured by itself in white gel coat).

It also means more room for the carb and tuned pipe, a wider radio box area, and also more usable transom width to push the rudder over an inch wider to the right getting it even more in line with the turn fin.
