Good to hear Kevin.

Happy to help with race plans - I'm sure there are a few tweaks we can play around with.

Also may just have a very good prop for you depending on what engine / gear ratio you go with in the end.

Adam

67 on GPS


Blimey, the speedo must be well out, last time I was in that boat it only did 57 on the gauge!

Got to admit running 57mph (speedo) at Torquay last year as well when i was in it,
Have you changed the Prop or lifted the engine to get the other 10mph?

Hey gaZ, maybe it goes better without our oversized frames on-board?

Sorry gaZ, I forgot that under that exterior lies the well hidden body of a finely tuned athlete.

Must have been KPH, no way that boat would do 67 mph as is, would it?
