  • Photo Contest

    We are looking for a photo similar to this one which will be used to create the v-driveboat.com t-shirts.
    What we are looking for is a picture of a similarly equipped boat taken from this exact angle. We'd prefer the only background touching any part of the boat be blue sky or water. We'd prefer a single-color paintjob not be bleeding into an overpowering reflection on the water and we want the wateline to be clearly defined. The cavitation hardware should clearly show above the waterline.
    We prefer that you are the original photographer.
    The winner will get a special "staff photographer" shirt, and immortality as the guy who took the shirt photo AND an extra year of insider membership

      Great idea. How about making up stickers. I would love to put one on my truck to show my gratitude for the help this site has given me.

      I have a great shot of my '73 Sanger 511 BBC from just this angle on Elephant Butte Lake in NM. How do I get the photo to you? - Rigger

      I can get that in a few weeks, but not until then. Let me know if you still need it in a few weeks.

      I always dug this one as the coolest angle to show off the truly unique, sweet lines and cavitation hardware of our beloved flattys. This is from the cover of an old Powerboat magazine. And it's an action shot.

      Just couldn't come up with a photo to meet the requirements, so I drew a couple.

      Very cool stuff TT. Slightly rippled water is perfect for what I want to do. The reason I like that camera angle is that it's as if you are up to your neck in the water looking up at the boat and it puts a big emphasis on the pipes! It makes a flatbottom look mighty instead of small and lightweight. Those would make great posters!

      T T,
      Ii printed the pictures and posted them on my office wall. Getting a lot of positive feedback. If I sent you a picture of my boat. What would it take to get a drawing, picture frame size? around 18" x 24"

      Maybe in the passager seat looking back or something simular to the doll type mud flaps. A girl laying on her back, on her elbows, head back, one knee up. (sun tanning). Across the transome. I think you will sell a lot more shirts with a girl on them. I have no artistic skill. TT is the man..
