Some good cockpit detailing there.

Colours remind me of my first 'proper boat' a Phantom 16 in red and yellow - although cockpit and seats were a bit more subdued. Great boat and ran very well with a Mercury 850xs!

I did 85mph first time out in my light 16ft race deck with 2.5 carb motor on.

Red one called Calypso on www.malcolmsphotos.fotopic.net

Most fun thing i've ever done. I think 90mph might have been acheivable but not 100. Blew the motor up before i found out.

Definitely overpowered though. Twisted every time came off the power. Very figity at full chat too until i really got the air under it then it was great.

... above 70mph feels like the hull is more frightened than me
... due to some flying empty bottles with direction me at our harbour i had to close the noisy xr2-exhaust
housing (changed to a 200xri serial mid with bms-tuner) maybe some revs are gone, but its funny enough
and there are no more bumps on my head
