waverider offshore deep vee
« on: January 05, 2009, 12:52:19 PM »

Hi guys some may know ive built a few offshore styel hulls recently and i was sent these videos from a guy who has a cpl so i thought id share them.Hes running them on the sea on the Isle of Wight  he still has a few trim adjustments to do and needs to readjust the ballance a bit but so far so good.Hes running a 5.5 hp sikk race tuned motor.Looks pretty fast so far,should get even faster once he gets her set up better but the potential for a fast boat is there,let me know what you think.

heres a cpl more videos and a pic of the hulls i sent him,ill post some pics of them after he painted them when i get them.You will notice in the last two videos he moved the tank to the back which made her a tad unstable so hes now going to try a bag setup and move the motor forward to get her balanced at my suggested 30%.I think he was thinking having more weight at the back would raise the bow and make her run looser but after we had a talk i think hes come round to my way of thinking that a ballanced boat will run better lol.Hes using a stinger drive which we both  felt was too high up from the bottom but hes lowered it down now so she should run much better now .
