Scrapheap Challenge

In the spirit of ritual humiliation watch Scrapheap Challenge this Sunday 16th, channel 4 at 17.30.
I am one of the experts asked to build "Drag Boats".
Other expert was Ted Walsh from Windermere.
Judge was Gina Campbell
Lorne Campbell was Technical Consultant.
Not everything went to plan ...

And you being so young an all.

A few years back I read an article in a mag, Motor Boats or MBY or something where they described some of the theory around duoprops....how the relationship between the front and rear props it calculated etc. After you got that big pile of mags you were going to keep yer eyes peeled for it. You forgot didn't ya?
