Yes we tested a 4-blade ballistic, it was to big to get up in plane but did give a pretty low slip, huh...

Was suppose to be 1½" smaller and the idea was to work on it, but when we got wrong by some kind of misstake, the prop has been sitting on the shelf since that test.

Runs better with the Raker. 84mph with the 200 crank hp inboard. Won every race is started in with that boat, except when we crashed it one time.

Swedish champions the two years we raced the whole season, and previous owner musth have 3-4 titles as well.

Great boat. Love it.
