Exclamation Urgent - 23p Laser Needed!!

Desperately need one of these ASAP, i.e. next few days to allow testing for cowes...
if anyone has one we could borrow/rent/buy please help!
Could be sent on Hovercraft or we could pick up from the south coast...
Cheers, Max

Didn't you used to have a BackDraft? What did you run for circuits and what revs did you run? Cheers, Max

Thats what i thought would be better suited to it rather than a 23" lazer?

You should speak to "carly baby" on here! He always used to do well with his 2litre backdraft!

I believe the fastest ever was an ultralight one that ran 76, but it was too flexible. They reinforced it, but the extra slowed it down. I think Pete also reckoned adding a bow tank was the worst thing he ever did to them. Carl's one had a 26" small hub cleaver on it and ran 72 mph @ 7200rpm, with the propshaft either 1/4" above or below (can't remember), engine mounted directly on transom.

Remember Pete did a lot of testing to arrive at the 26" small hub cleaver.
