Glad you are doing this, and extremely interested in everything I read, less the hood tricks notion. I have desired to test a modified 300 for a long time now, and the thought is really the only thing that keeps me from going ahead and moving on a FX-1. I hope you post some ride video when completed. Please elaborate on this statement, “It is the funnest feeling hull I have ever ridden”. Is it nimble/squirrely like the FX-1? That is what I like about them.
