Bazza, Do I read correctly from your post, that the Cyclone is down on speed?

When they arrived on the scene, I understood they were infinitely quicker than all that had gone before, is this not the case?

Cyclone

Jon, it may well be the case if made of all lightweight materials, mine was made to survive Hunstanton Worlds!! once up on the pad, yes they are a different animal, however the offshore conditions do not allow that to happen too often, or may be i just cant drive properly. What i will say is that its no slower than my Phantom was, and at any given speed the skiers ride is far superior, the handling also,the phantom was/is a fantastic boat but at the top end in F2 (which is the only formula i can comment from experience on) the skier had to work a lot harder.IMHO they are a fantastic ski race boat.
Also Jon did you receive my PM/email regarding the P21 i want to restore.

Help !!!!! Still no good

Hi all, Raised engine about 2.5" and took her out this morning. Still a bit rough so didn't push too hard. She appeared to lean over to port more than when the engine was lower. This time I was alone so no weight on Port side. Did push her to 60mph (Max speed log from GPS) but she didn't seem faster although she lurched over hard. Any ideas ???? If the answer is, to move the engine over, how much ????. Cheers Going for a

Peter
