OK peeps, I found my Bat boat pictures!! Here they are. Me and 3 freinds painted this and afixed the batwings to it in our Junior year in High School. My dad and uncle owned this boat and it was UGLY pink. We wanted to paint it, my dad said GO FOT IT! He didnt care what color we painted it cuz it was so ugly. so we converted it to a batboat. :) it was a early 60's Owens boat, and Merc engine. LOTSA fun!!!!! that boat was a tank, but we got more looks at any marina with that beast! it was a blast for 4 goofy teenagers to have fun with. And yes, those windshields are from a late 80's yamaha phaser. everything in the boat was labeled just like in the 60's TV series. Bat key, Bat horn, Bat Steering wheel, Bat Gas, Bat Throttle, Bat Compass, Bat speedometer, etc.... and the horn was an old "Oooga" horn like the old cars had in the 30's. FUN BOAT!

too funny, in high school my friend and i bought a bat moblie. some guy made it out of an 88 olds delta. he had made it for a parade and then decided to sell it. as high school kids we didnt have much money and we offered him $300. the guy took it. we had to forge our parents signature to buy it , since we were only 16. we would hide around the corner from our houses so our parents didnt know about it. we had a great time with it until the cops started giving us a hard time. ended up selling it to some HP geeks who thought they could use it to pick up chicks. may have worked for us in high school. these guys were in their early 30's at the time doubt it worked for them. i wish i had pics of it!!

Yea, ever since childhood. I wore a dish towel and called it my "cave" cuz I couldnt pronounce Cape. so I had a long time fascination with super heros I guess. :rolleyes: but yes, I cant deny it. My parents are laughing their arses off right now Steve, they loved your comment!:)

What ever became of that boat? It should be in the archives, the UMP archives.

I want to make one out of an old Checkmate boat. I had a friend that had one, and I wanted to buy it, but he wanted too much for it. I still want another bat boat. Someday......someday.......

BTW, when my dad sold that boat, we kept the bat wings, but we lots trac of them years later.... I dont know what became of them.

I truly want to have another one someday. when the time is right, something will come along and I will pick up a project boat and do another one. Something cheap......

Maybe now if I get one, I can ski behind it with my cape on:cool: 8p

Uh...where do you see a cooler? :confused: I dont see one....

NO on the members only Jacket, I think Jim was wearing a jean jacket there, I could be wrong, but thats what memory serves anyway..... I was driving the boat in both pics.

Oooo! NO way Leroy! :noface: As cool as the concept of a bat boat is, I cant deface my 190 like that. Just cant do it. It would be a crime in my eyes to do something like that to a Mastercraft. If I found the right old clunker for really cheap, I might be inclined to buy it and paint it up. Someday I will stumble into something.....(most likely it will be my coffee table8p )

I guess it was peer pressure, apparantly it wasnt "cool" to wear capes in high school years. 8p 8p ;)

Actually, I am a trend setter Steve, I decide all the latest things that are "cool" it will take a while, but the cape thing will soon be all the rage at everyones local night club. it will be hip, en vogue, ya know, the "in" thing to do. Follow my fashion sense Staristar:D :cool:

Speaking of capes.....how did things go last night with your wife? did you get to the costume store before they closed?

I didn't know the Bat Boat had an "ooga horn" :confused: :rolleyes: :confused:

Good call on the 190 UMP. Those wings would get in the way of the ski rope, though they might improve tracking!

Didn't need a costume as I found out, as I would have only worn mine as long as she wore hers. I saved the $'s and went to Wendy's after it was all over and got us a "Frosty" to cool us both off!
Man, it was good too! I just love them chocolate "Frosties"!:rolleyes:

Nice boat UMP. This bat boat reminds me of our little boat parade that ended in a naval war on July 1st last year. Good thing that MC can't sink because my ski partner's Bat Boat had onbord a huge water pump hooked to a Honda generator. They called it the bat cannon...
Talk about being competitive...:mad: I will need ideas for next year's revenge.
