Okay, you have had your fun. Now what's going on with the real ride? Ever decide on the engine? Do anything else to it?

Craig, Christer and Karl, it's not at all clear to me that Peter has had lot's of fun recently, or made a pile of money.

In fact my hunch is that he's working his arse off trying to get the ride venture off the ground, against all types of local bureaucratic and financial hurdles.

But regardless, no builder on this forum owes any of us a next build report. If and when they are ready to report, that's great, and the rest of us are enriched. If not, so be it.

I realise that your comments were made in jest, but given that there has been no response ......

Here endeth the sermon. :wink:

Yes, the hydroplane is on the back burner while Peter focused on a new adventure: setting up a carnival ride on the beach in Curacao. He did a fantastic job and as GB says, encountered some bureaucratic problems but it should be all clear very soon.

Further to JM's update, google Beach Party Curacao to see what Peter is up against as he seeks all approvals.

Do you think he's doing it easy?

Hi guys

First of thank you all for the birthday wishes I really appreciate it, second I,m truly sorry for not replying in a decent time and this very very late reply :oops: :oops: It's true I was very busy finishing the ride and taking all the hurdles to get it open in a legal way this was a lot harder as what our government told me before i started this adventure.I was ready and build up before Christmas unfortunately I missed all those good days because of the indecision of different government organizations :x 2 weeks ago the moment was there that 1 of the many organizations give me heads up and told me I could official open with the papers and permits I have, so I decided not to wait on the others and opened up the ride in a commercial way, so far so good knock on wood. 8) The down side, it is low season now so not a real good time to open up and get an idea if I made a good choice starting this venture, but we will see what the future brings us, I still have my other work, so thankfully I won't have to worry to much.

As for the Flyer I first wanna take a vacation in the near future, after that I will pick up on the Flyer again, that is if there's any money left :lol: if not it will take a bit longer, but I will assure you guys that if there is any progress you guys will be the first I will show it too, maybe I will start with the smaller jobs on it what will take less money we will see, again you guys are the first to hear it 8)

For those interested in the ride and the re-theming of it you can see it on the Facebook page below and for those without Facebook I will post a webpage and YouTube link - Likes, Shares and Subscriptions are greatly appreciated :wink: 8)

Feels good to be back and having a small moment to post here 8)

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.
