Newbie here

Hi, newbies here from Norway
Awesome site, love the movies and pics, and the interesting discussions.
My borther and I are going to be racing a Argo cat 17 with a yamaha 90 for the 2006 seson,3B, will post pictures of our boat and car soon.....
Can`t wait for the summer.

Here`s a link I haven`t seen posted here yet, It`s a Argo cat 3C 2l boat. Apparently the steering broke :
Picked the movie off batracing.no :

Hi french phil, what is your setup on the argo?
speed etc? do u use a lift? what kind of props?

this our 2nd argo, sold the previous one right before last summer, the new owner ran it 72knots with a yamaha 90 before flipping it...! a couple of weeks ago... after a loooot of rigging.....

Have you thought about changing the windshield to the newer ones ?

CR, I don't race but I'm trying to get 70mph out of it. 56 mph so far but with a shot piston & sleave. I have a CNC hydro jackplate , hydro steering and a Ron Hill chopper pitch/diam unknown. Got to get me a yamaha 24 drag prop this spring. If that doesn't do it a 26 or 28 cleaver although on the Seine near Paris the speed is limited to 20 kph ...

Cheers

Can you ask your Government to stop sending me speeding and toll road fines.
