The red one I'm selling is an 88/89 (34B, I think) But I have an 87 P20 too which I'm keeping as it has just been rigged by CYCO with a 260 and lots of shiny bits. No name as yet though, any ideas?

Yes like that one but swap the grey and the white around inside the red and just a plain white top deck

I find, if you're taking pics of a boat tearing up and down, or mebbe taking pics of a race, if you can get in a position were the boats pass at roughly the same distance from you each time, then manualy set the focus for that distance, switch off auto-focus, and snap away, that works best for me. trouble with the 'hold button halfway' bit is, by the time it's finished pissing about deciding on a focal lenth, the boat's long gone

Yes, it is the boat in his avatar!!!

The motor has tighter heads giving it about 145lbs compression, thats about as much as you want if your running on pump gas. It also has the two stage reeds a cross drilled inlet manifold from an XR2 and he's not running an airbox anymore. Larger main jets have also been fitted.

That 26 chopper is not standard either, its been thinned out and probably had some other stuff done to it but I dont know much about props so.....................

All this talk about fast boats reminds me of these, have a look at these pictures taken at last years Ski racing Championship's in Long Beach (LA)

21ft Bernico built by Nico Bertels



21FT Connelly single engine with twin outdrives





Now for something special again 21ft with 2 small blocks, used to tow a lady skier, does have 2 big blocks when more speed is required, well over the 100 mph

How about this for a fast boat!!!

Its the all alluminium 67 meter (220 feet) jet powered Destriero!!!

It holds the transatlantic speed record covering the 3,106 miles from New York's Ambrose Point Lighthouse to England's Bishop Rock Lighthouse in 55 hours without refueling. Averaging 53 knots for the entire trip, the sleek luxury yacht is capable of top speeds over 65 knots.

Whats that in MPH, anybody?

I like the Americans attention to detail.

Just in case the two small blocks don't give enough speed they have a paddle to use as well !

Yanks

The yanks certainly pride themselves with how cool they can make a boat look.

I could understand 2 engines and one drive on a deep V hull. But what advantage 1 into 2 has, i'm really not sure?
