Rip Tide is a 17.5″ wedge shaped cruiser. It will run on a 1.3L Suzuki engine for thrust and a 16 hp Kohler engine for lift. The hull is nearly ready for finish sanding, paint, and installation of the controls. However, work on this craft is temporarily on hold to enable full time development of the LSX prototype.
