Soooooo Horrible. Ugly as sin. I guess it is ok for a promo boat or something but yuck.

sippi 05-16-2012 11:37 AM

Im going to agree with brett here. that thing is ugly. cool concept, awful execution. I think it would have looked better a little more simple like maybe an old school fighter jet logo and all mat colors...

hatepain 05-16-2012 11:54 AM

Yeah, thats horribly ugly!

Too busy

jcfox00 05-16-2012 12:01 PM

Its different, Gotta give them that...

sippi 05-16-2012 12:02 PM

oh and i hope that lake is as high as it gets. if not then that guys garage or house or whatever that is, is just plain doomed.

Preston 05-16-2012 12:30 PM

I think it's cool. Much better than a bunch of skulls or barbed wire.

I am not sure I can argue with that. I am just hoping the whole wrap thing has come and gone. Most look like complete crap and they are super expensive. Unless it is for a promo boat like this one I am assuming I have no idea why anybody wastes their money on them.

I think it would have looked 100x better if they left the wheels off. Just straight camo.

ktrent 05-16-2012 2:28 PM

i think it was a boat to honer the military so thats cool, its because of them we can have cool boats and play on the lake anytime we want but other than that it terrible. a fighter jet theme would have be cooler. i just don't get the whole theme stuff, like the stuff on american choppers. if its a boat it should look like a boat. reminds me of the caterpillar sprint cup car.

What are you guys seeing? All I see is a small section of lake with a garage in the background!:banghead:

That boat is for a Homes for Wounded Warriors project that Jared Allen is part of. I saw this in person at the Minneapolis Boat Show...pretty neat looking if you ask me. A lot of the equipment on that boat was donated by various companies, and a portion of the proceeds of the sale of it go to the Homes for Wounded Warriors Foundation.

Its obviously for a great cause but its still unattractive. I will say that its pretty cool the track wheels on the tank hit right at the water line.

I agree with everything you said. It would be kind of interesting to see it up and running to see if the wheels and track line up with the water at all.

csswake3 05-18-2012 10:35 AM

It's on a man made lake

sippi 05-18-2012 10:41 AM

itd look better if they slammed that thing so the water is half way up the wheels haha

Your Welcome :)

Great project and I hope they raise a ton of money for the Wounded Warriors!!!

sippi 05-18-2012 11:05 AM

it would have looked great without those wheels and tracks..they should have just done the rest like that and moved the malibu down under the rubrail. maybe put "wounded warriers" or something on the back corner where the chrome "malibu" usually is.

jcfox00 05-18-2012 1:09 PM

Man you guys are really picking this thing apart. If you think it should be this way or that, make one yourself and post it up here...

I think the military theme is bad ass! Who doesn't think tanks are fricken sweet? I totally dig it and the fact that it supports a good cause, even better.

I also like the classy white and black boats out there too, just sayin....

It looks awesome moving in the water! Great cause and nice wrap.
