So, what exactly went wrong?

You told me the other day that there were 'issues' with the patented "variable ratio transmission system", but I have to say that the motor didn't look too clever either!....who prepped it for you?


Pray tell

great bit of telly, perhaps a smaller (less weight) engine might have helped or at least they might not have been sinking so quick!!

The kids loved it too but agreed not the sort of things to set records in..

May have been better off just repairing the shagged-out outboard that they hoiked the prop off and using that. Not as innovative, but at least it was designed for the job!

Yeah. That was a pretty impressive hull to knock up from sheet in a few hours. Worked too, if a little leaky, but then what can you expect? It's not gonna have make too many channel crossings after all.

Well it was possibly not as embarassing as I was expecting.
Points worth noting: Ran out of time to make variable ratio system as we really did only have ten hours.
Tehy wouldn't let us start the motor out of the water as they thought that the prop may flyoff so we didn't realise that it only had seven pistons in until too late !
Rochester/ Holley carb was completely gummed up and probably only running one barrell.
Fuel tank was above motor so should have been gravity feed.
On the run back I just got her on the plane by sitting on the bow and leaning back to steer.
So much for the rummored 290HP, I would have put it nearer to 29HP !
Lisa is great and spent the whole time making the teams coffee.
Robert is as daft as a brush, when he turned up his first words were "78 how about that 78" of course all the crew knew that he was bragging about the MPG of his Toyota Prius hybrid car.
It was, at the end of the day, bloody good fun but the startling thing was that there were 65 people at the lake involved in the production. Now you know why television programes are so expensive !
And we won- even if by default ...
