Hi Bob here

It was Manufactured in Brighton in 1991/2 by Carrera Boats & produced initially as a Carrera later to become a Kona !! I raced a Carrera custom "V" in OCR 2ltr 1991 & then the one with the flowers at end of 1991 in a basic race . We then went on to race it in Water-Ski Racing where it was as quick as any F2 boat even though it was F3 with a std XR2 (genuine high 70's) .

I think yours was bought by Reddish Marine Salcombe late '92'

As for props it ran very well on small hub Laser but much faster on Cleaver style Yamaha Hi Performance (not for the faint hearted)

An exceptional rough & smooth water Boat. & worth looking after.

Bob

thanks

hi bob,thanks for that info,you certainly know your game!!
what are your veiws on it being a first boat?i know its a "in a the deep end" sort of boat for a novice to start,was it designed for lake use because in mild chop it really bangs on the waves,it tends to scare the sh***t out of me!some people say i have got to go faster but with that going on its hard to do that.i really like this boat and it gets some great looks too but i cant help but think maybe i should have bought a boat with a vee hull to cut my teeth.your veiws on this would be good,
cheers again
jamie

You will find that most performance boats "Bang alot " in choppy conditions this is usually because things are loose & sound much worse than it is . Compared to a conventional "V" it is extremely stable & does tend to come down on a cusion of air. thus giving quite a comfy ride. assuming setup is somewhere close. Its as good as any for a first boat. It may be worth trying a Laser prop on it (21" or 23".

hi

hi bob,
and you promise it wont snap in half!! lol.
i think the set up is about right as it doesnt look like its been touched from its racing days,1 question you could clarify is,neutral trim,as i take it, the shaft which the prop bolts to is running true to the bottom of the hull.is this correct.what would fitting a laser prop do exactly as to how it is at the moment?
thanks again,hope you dont mind the questions,
jamie

It Should'nt break in half !! However i did suffer with some delamination on mine (on flat pad) Neutral trim is slightly out from level (if you extend a straight edge along the kiel to end of cavitation plate , then measure up to the cav plate front & rear the rear should be approx 2mm higher than the front) , i would suggest also that cavitation plate should be approx 100mm higher than the kiel. (good starting point) . The Laser type props tend to give much better Bow Lift as opposed to stern lift from the Cleaver type you have now. I am unaware of it ever Racing although dont know where it has been since Reddish sold it approx 10 years ago. (i know where mine is )

I think you will find that is a "Salcombe Harbour (would be racing) Sticker" You would not get away with Racing in there !!
