G6 Boat Videos

Postby Mr Hot Rod » Fri Sep 14, 2012 10:59 pm

We had a great time at G6 and would like to thank everyone who made it happen. Your hospitality and camaraderie keeps us coming back every year ! Hope to see you again next year.

We've been knee deep in videos Nick shot of the River Run and boat rides. Here's the first cut of Neel Thompson's Gentry. Track has been waiting for this one :P


Congratulations on your launch, Neel !

We'll post more videos soon ...

Note to Moderator : Tried to post under the topic Post your G6 pics and videos here but it was locked. Please move this post if necessary. Thanks !

Paul.... Many thanks to you and Nick for this video. It was great running side by side with Hot Rod, and maybe I will beef up my motor for next year so I can keep up with you. I was thrilled with the performance and handling of my boat, especially considering I built it !!! I never dreamed it would ride like that... Thanks again....Neel

Neel, your Gentry really looks great on the water. Looks like it's on rails. I know you are happy.

Thanks for posting this close up view. I had the opportunity to go for a ride but never really had a chance to see it running from the side. What a smooth ride.

I agree. That boat just looked so good in the water and the bow hardly moved. It sure looks like a cushy ride. Also the wine of the engine in the Hot Rod is nice. I could play that as background music at night.

Here's the first cut of Gayle's ride in the Hot Rod. The titles and graphics will be added later -- Bill wants to go for a boat ride ... :P


I'd like to thank Neel Thompson for providing the chase boat and Nick for shooting the video. We'll post some River Run videos soon !

Thanks for taking and posting the video. Man she runs like she is on rails!!! At one point Gayle's hair is streaming almost straight back. If mine goes near as well as that I will be happy! It makes me want to work faster, but I have to stop myself and concentrate on getting each bit right.

As for Hot Rod, well what can I say. 8)
What a rocket!
