First proper sea test yesterday and it was a confused sea off Salcombe with wind over tide and all sorts - got some great photos and it was doing 64mph in all of that, got on the plane easily enough but we may run out of revs in flat water - might have to get some bigger props!
I'm the one that had a shave yesterday!
Been following this thread for a while....great stuff- that looks fantastic.
Great pics indeed!
And the boat seems to keep a perfect attitude during jumps.
...but... Where are the clips !?!
I can't believe you didn't take some.
Sorry we ran out of time to set the GOPRO up - next time I promise!
You'll be able to see the boat and a bunch of other racers this weekend on Poole Quay. The boats will be on display on Saturday and racing on Sunday - See you all there!
Looks like she she well Cookee, you must be really pleased after all that planning and work.
If you put bigger props on what sort of speed do you think she will run out at WOT.
Apart from the extended bit at the stern is she just about finished?
The stickers are on now and we have made a couple of alterations to comply with the regulations and putting it all back together for the race in Poole this weekend - the "Bustle" will be finished off in the next couple of weeks and it will have a recess for the liferaft in it.
these pictures are impressively "sharp"
as is the boat,
well done guy's
really interesting thread !
Thanks Cookee wish we could be down this weekend for a nosey, still plenty of time over the summer im sure.
Fantastic project and thread and trust all goes well on Sunday, Will you be taking part or are you just there to show her off!
