Yep
Towed it back from Germany on the back of my Escalade through Holland and onto the ferry home.
A German guy tried to convert it into a pleasure boat by removing the fighter canopy and made a bit of a mess.
I am currently in the process of re rigging the full boat with a modern style cockpit like the MTI cats.
Spoke to Mark Pascoe and John Cunningham about the boats design, as everyone knows it had a few incidents like rolling over on a number of occasions.
Its main problem was the CG was to high, the fuel tank engine drive and drivers were all sat to high on top or the tunnel.

The fuel tanks have been relocated into the bottom of the sponsons, a centre pod has been added to the rear of hull to allow the Arneson ASD8 drop box to mounted as low as possible.
I have used a BPM stern tube because of the extra length and a prop speed of 6000rpm has been chosen to keep the torque down from the turbine.

Any extra input would be much apprecated.

Cheers
Jason
