Hi Bill it looks good so far interesting design on those sponsons(outriggers) too,what fin did you get with the kit or do you have to buy or make your own?.Those riggers run great a mate of mine has one over in the states with a modded zenoah in it one thing he told me is you need high rpm to get em up and moving and you will need to Throw  it in to get it moving  ok2.Is it one of the firefighter ones if so  a mate of mine in Aus has built all of them and hes allways doing mods to them to gain more performance,good thing is the sponsons are dead easy to make using foam and ply so you can experiment with diff shapes and sizes.If i can find any pics of his ill post a cpl if you like .Look forward to seeing how she turns out,you might be surprised how well she handles rough water too  :-)).

Hi Martin
I am not sure who made this kit. I am told he is English?? I do know it is not a Firefighter kit but it isn't far out. Re Engine, I'm going to try my modded Zen to see how it gets on at first. Thanks for the photos they may help me out a bit.
Phil
Yes Control 1 speakers. Only the best!!!  My whole rig is JBL all 2.4 kw of it.
I hope to have the boat up and ruining soon. That should keep you on your toes at Llanberis. ( as long as her indoors lets me out to play?)
Cheers for now

Bill, if you're going to the OMRA AGM on Sunday, there are always bits and pieces for sale cheap. Aim to get there about 11.30 and catch them bringing the stuff in  :-))

Hey Bill i have lots of pics of his riggers he sent me few diff ones hes a rigger nut lol,if you require anything specific let me know im only too glad to help mate ,i can email them to save clogging up your thread with pics lol.Glad you decided on the modded zenoah she should go well ,from what he tells me they can be finnicky to setup to run well but once you find the right strut height and prop etc it should be very fast mate and you will be shaking believe me  O0,its a real rush running these things they run like theyre on rails even in chop once theyre setup right.What prop you planning on trying? i can find out a few recomendations for you if you wish.What i can tell you from running hydros you will want a prop with lots of lift i run a 6717/3 from propshop that Chris Hoffman worked for me(dasboata) ok2.

I am a bit off working out prop size at the mo but thanks for the advise. Prop shop was at the show last week. Lots of brass props on show.  I have got to work out what color I'm going to paint it next. When I have all the wood work done thats next before I fit it out with the ruining gear. I think The tub will be metallic yellow, Floats in Red or possibly Black metallic . I'm not sure yet.

It's going to be waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayy over 40mph, the Makara does that easily...

Bill put soem kind of right angled piece of metal on the back so I can give it fast launches, it'll probably need them...

And as for your rescue boat, you're going to need an unlimited hydroplane or a tunnel hull with at least a 1000hp engine to keep up.... %)

Your not wrong Andy that thing will fly once he finds the right prop and strut setup for it,my shovelnose hydro is ballistic with a full mod so the rigger should at least be as fast as that if not faster.Im looking for a gps to put in the hydro so i can get a speed reading,im hopefull its gonna be very very fast  :-).

As you know Andy I have a GPS which will tell alll about the speed. Thats how I know the Makara is doing some where around 40 mph.
The last time i tracked it was 37.6 mph with the Sikk engine. The moded Zen dose a bit more. We should have tracked it at Llanberis when it was runing up to the 11 mark!!!! :-))
Goodnight. Been a long day. 19 hour since I got up.!!

Things are still on the move with my Hydro.
Made the engine canopy now and it's best part painted. Should get all the parts back Sunday to finish off the engine rebuild. I have ordered the hardware from PMB which will be here during the week.  Who knows maybe I will  have it in the water  Feb time, but I don't want to rush the building / fitting out the boat.
