Inspired by my two (2016) "Design the Boat" contest wins and driven by my passion for design and hydroplane racing I decided to take on a personal project to redesign all of the boats in the H1 Unlimited fleet. This was probably one of the most fun projects I've done as I had essentially no restrictions on what I could create. The possibility of any of these designs ever actually making it on a boat is extremely low but I still had fun pushing myself to come up with something new. Along with all of the boat designs being comletely original, the team logos for the U-9, U-21, U-27, and U-100 are also my original creations.
This boat and the U-7 are a two boat team which is why their designs are the same with just the red and black switched.
This boat and the U-5 are a two boat team which is why their designs are the same with just the red and black switched.
The silver ares here would be a chrome finish so as the boat went by it would catch the light and "shimmer."
This is what my "Design the Boat" contest entry would have looked like without the rules/restrictions.
