  1. Present company excluded...
  2. No problem...as soon as China occupies the Jeepneys will take them out!!!
  3. No matter how hard I try it feels like I'm just moving backwards...
  4. Many like being able to pack a bag and go for a trip at a moments notice...
  5. I believe that with the new ability to use the "Like" button most will not be able to see who liked their posts...only that it was liked by "somebody" @Paul perhaps the giver of all things can confirm this...
  6. http://news.mb.com.ph/2017/05/17/use-of-mobile-phones-gadgets-while-driving-is-prohibited-starting-today/ This article talks briefly about monitoring through tinted windows...
  7. Exactly what I'm thinking. Would be fun to show them something they've never seen !!!
  8. Yes I have. I fact we bought a second hand car that the windshield was so dark you could barely see out of it and no way you could drive at night. I get it...it keeps some of the sun's rays from heating up your car but you really need to see where you are going. In Florida it would be illegal. In fact you are only allowed to tiny a 6 inch strip across the top of your windshield there. So...we are talking windshields here...right? It's about the law enforcement/LTO to see inside, (the windshield), to see if you are texting, you tubing, etc. Also, back to Florida, (not sure about the other states), you can only legally tint to a certain % of darkness. Police have a meter they can put on the side windows by rolling them down a bit and placing the meter on the glass. I don't know if they have the technology to do rear windows or not but if it's blacked out, they can ticket you. I will try to find the article I was reading this morning. Was in the paper at the restaurant and I left it there.
  9. I read this morning that they have technology that can detect mobile devices through heavily tinted windshields to prevent people from escaping the law. 1st, if I believed they had that technology I don't believe the Phils would use it properly 2nd, If your windshield is so heavily tinted that someone can't see in, it would limit your vision out and be yet anothwer distraction. I am glad they passed this law but it needs a lot of tweaking to be useful
  10. The hulls look like they are stepped horizontally up towards the aft. That would give them a hydroplane type lift at speed. Good idea on the pontoons with aluminum. However, for racing do you have to have pontoons? They hardly touch the water. But then, that's what makes them bancas...
  11. I think I could do better building one but would like to find the specs for qualification. These look like you would have to modify them from the fishing boat form somewhat before you could race Can you put us in touch with a builder?
  12. Ummmm....I think I'll stick to Bailey's. But thanks!!! I'll add a little more booze and less fluff, pour it in my empty Bailey's bottles and give the stuff to the relatives for Christmas! They'll never know!
  13. So the design is slightly different than a traditional Banca yet all the boats seem similar enough that there must be a standard for qualifying. I've done some low level searches on the internet but found little on the subject. Any suggestions?
