First Run

finally got Kissaki into the water on thursday and took it for first run in the harbour, thankfully supported by the hoist crew so no one could complain. jumps on the plane well and engine ran surprisingly smooth even on a long low speed run.

took her out to see on friday and managed to hit 50 mph at 5,500 rpm, boat was very steady and didn't squrim, runs very level. so now to prop test n find those last 2000 rpms.

still no the prettiest of boats but needed to stop spending money and see if it worked so hopefully see you all around the solent sometime
