They are small tubes and they arn't a mod - they are original equipment. It's a Fabio Buzzi hull and they are sold as military hulls, so the tube is a stabiliser and fender all in one - source of information Giovanni Carpitella - Throttle man!

The owner and driver of the red cat is Mike Spinks navigator is "AJ"
