Littlehampton

Ian Stirling stormed to victory today at LA in less than favourable conditions, coming home with a minute and a half lead.

It has to be said, Cookee lead for four laps with a very convincing lead until yet another saddle failure brought his race down to a snails pace.

Pete Little & Dave Arthur retired near the end of the race following a stuff.

Verytricky, AKA Marc Lamont romped home in V-24, making it all look very easy.

A few pics from the day: (the boats were way offshore, so these pics are a little dissapointing!)

I also shot some video, if I get time, i'll put a small edit together & post it.

That's the 3rd sadle in 5 years, the pictures were taken in the pits after Kitten had strapped it up - it was really hangine off, but we managed to finish to get the points with the 70% rule (If you're running at the finsih and done 70% of the race you qualify as a finisher and get points).

Well done to Josh and Ian in Blaze - they were never that far behind us although bits were falling off themselves and the boat for much of the race as well!

Cookie, just a thought.......................dunno if it's a good one.
What about getting the saddle checked over with an HFEC once in a while or even an xray. Could ultrasonic it but it's not 100%.

If you want to do it at some point let me know. I can sort it.
small volume is fine but dont all jump in here guys. can only squeeze in so many "homers"

Xray can take a while as I have to give 7 days notice to Health & Safety. hence HFEC prefered.

Ian Blacker and Pete Little both said that Mercury have had issues with some of them, and are doing warranty claims for these parts - the thing is it doesn't help win races, it just makes it cheaper to replace the parts!

I assume I would have to take the part off the boat to have it tested? I have no idea what a HFEC is! I would certainly appreciate it - this one lasted quite a while - we had it cryogenically treated to make it stronger, the thing is I have no idea how long it would have lasted if it was untreated!

Thanks for the offer - if you let me know how you want the parts etc I would love to take you up on the offer - cookee@bananasharkracing.com

My arse!
I thought V2 were using *my* trick of following in the blind spot then waiting for a mistake or slacking to overtake. I done it to him at Guernsey, so I figured he was doing it to me at Little ampton. I did not know till the finish that he retired lap 6!!

We were all out racing till the flag, against no one

The boat is damaged. The stringer is broken port side front. The engine bay is a little unhappy with the bateries bouncing around inside, and I think I have more delaminate than laminate.....

Depends on the power of the set you are using, but it's not my forte. Do 6" quite often. As I say bleeding black art nick name them "daywalkers" never go outside much and all pasty looking
