Bugger! I'm wasting my time messing around with a 200, aren't I? I should have just bought the 150 and saved myself a whole lot of aggro!

Can a 23 pitch prop pull 90, out of interest? (I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he means MPH rather than knots!)

If it can, what sort of revs would it be turning??

You leave the tonneau cover off in a thunderstorm and keep the hull drain plug in.

If you fill it up with Chlorine it'll even keep your feet clean and free of verrucas.

Saw it advertised and contacted the guy who owns it.
He sent me the following pictures saying he was looking for around £6000.
Anyone know the boat ? looks a bit of a 'dog' to me !

Should do an easy 90+. My Old Ring 20 cruised at an easy 105 and topped out at 120 with a 200.

We have seen 203 mph on Mr. Noisy but we slowed down cause it says on the dashboard "Caution - Do not exceed 200 mph."

Ben, I take it your wrist tag indicates you've escaped from the institution again.

Wouldn't dream of trying to escape. We're allowed at at race weekends. Me and the Chief that is.

Fast Ring

Neil, if that wonder boat could do 90, how fast shall we claim for my special red 20 Ring that Mike made light. You created the injected XR2 with the other specials including the boxes of ECUs we tried till the magic one worked.
Happy days 1995 i think.
The older i get the faster i was!!!!

I can confirm that Bazza's Ring with Neil's special XR2 hit at least 125 MPH, well it did when I towed it back from the South of France after the Europeans.
