AquaVITE ski race boat

Still really keen to get our new ski-race model out racing and can do a very keen deal. We have one brand new boat ready to be rigged for Formula 2.

I will be taking the demo boat to Allhallows this weekend - if anyone wants to see her in the flesh. This version is slightly different but will give a good idea.

Your post says you will be taking the boat to Allhallows this weekend for a demo but there is no ski race this weekend, there may well be a power boat race but not ski racing!

Very true - should have said will be taking the demo boat there for the powerboat race. Will be the first 'public viewing' of the boat and is pretty close to the ski race model - so if anyone is interested it maybe worth a visit if local.

Was a shame - the engine went into shut-down mode and would not
clear itself on re-starts.

The version at Allhallows does not measure for water-ski racing - BUT the Waterki version most definitley DOES measure - would hardly have built a boat that would not measure.

I think if you read my posts it makes it fairly clear that there are two different versions. You should have come over for a chat and would have happily explained - then you would not have posted an inaccurate post!

Adam, i thought those engines were delivery carton to start line no messing,
no running in, so perhaps it was something else than just newness. I did stop and look at your boat as we "HOTSHOT" were leaving on Saturday afternoon. I am just waiting for my "new" Cyclone to be rigged or i might well have given your design a go, it would be interesting to see if any one takes up your offer as no doubt it will require some developement and input rom a new owner.

Saw Hotshot in the boat part and looked really good - all the best with your new boat too.

With our engine - common opinion seems to be that is most likely to be on the oil sensor side. Although they are pretty much all ready to go - they do run extra oil for the first ten hours. We actually had a low oil reading alarm when we launched (even when though the tank was full) and although it cleared it was really slow to pull and get onto the plane.

Hopefully will get the ski-race versiuon out there and I think it has a lot of potential -but yes liek all new boats will need some setting up. On the positive side when all set-up I think a (or at least some) stepped hull should work really as they really ride so level and in theory help to make the bow work and give a good wash.

Anyway we will see. I guess for the red boat the next race will be the Cancer Research at Poole - which will allow us to get a few more hours in! Also a bit more prop work (we were carrying far too much pitch for Allhallows, especially with those tight turns!) and get the bow tank connected.

Cheers
Adam

Yes - going to enter the race - always a good event.

Hopefully will get a few more hours on teh engien by then. We have a demo booked for this week and then hopefully a bit more prop work etc.

Hopefully see you at Poole
