She looks good Bill i just recieved plans for the Firefighter Rigger,ill have them printed up and make a start sometime in the spring.These things are awesome and if you set them up right which isnt easy by all accounts they will handle suprisingly well in fairly choppy conditions.No need for a handle on these things really as the tub is so narrow you can pick em up and launch easy.By the way Bill you will want one of these on it or it wont turn very well  ok2.

Well the big day -1 has come. I have got the boat to a point where I  have had to fill the fuel tank up and try and fire the newly rebuilt engine up in my back yard. 1 or 2 minor little problems like a small leak from the fuel tank pipes.  With the aid of a small Tye rape it's shorted now. One of the bolts on the HT coil needed puling up. The engine started without any trouble. I ran it with cooling water going though the system for 15 Min's at low revs. All seems good for it's trip to the lake in the morning.
If you want to come along for it's very 1st test run heres where i will be.  Fairlands valley lake, Off Six's hill way Stevenage. On the middle lake from 9am till 12.00 or something breaks or fools off. I will try and get some pica's / video  of it's 1st run to post here.

Well the day has come when there was nothing Else for it but to lunch it in the water and p the ducks off.
Bl**dy hell fire did it go!!!!! Only got up to 1/3rd full power. I managed to get Andy wet on the bank with the roster tail  as it went passed.  It was far to cold other then to have a very short run just to test her out. the camera even gave up as the cold got to the battery's. Hope in a short time to have the Youtube video today.
Yours still shaking

So Andy got soaked on 1/3 power, so I reckon on full power you should be able to water all the grass and the trees in park
Note to self, take scuba gear when going to watch Bill's boat
Glad the first test was successful   :-))

Andy has been sitting next to a fire all afternoon trying to warm up after A.)Bill getting me wet and B.)Standing still with a camera for 5 mins...

Ill put the video up on youtube as soon as I get it - File transfer is being rather slow at the moment.

Youre definately gonna need the canopy Stav, or at least an umbrella, he got me soaked from about 8 feet away on no throttle whatsoever

A rather moist Andy :-))

As the gym is far too far for Stavros and I to get too (whatever a gym is anyway !!!) I'm off to the lake district to borrow a certain "Bluebird" cos my way of thinking, thats the only bu**er that will be able to keep  O0

Congrats on getting her wet Bill,now you gotta pull the trigger so we can see how she really runs  ;).You should be looking at well over 65 mph,if you use a full mod id say 85 mph is acheivable who knows maybe more.

Hi Martin
Me thinks I need to find a biger bit of water to run her flat out. Still today went fine, However it was /is very cold out there. I need it a little warmer to get a good long run.
Still I'm Very happy with how it went today.

A bigger pond allways helps but the way these things turn dont be afraid to give her a bit more,i used to be a bit worried when i first realised how fast my hydro was gonna be but she turns brilliant and although the ponds not wide she turns at full tilt without a problem.What turn fin are you using on her mate?,ill look forward to seeing some fast videos of her once you get her sorted.

I think that this might do for you e bay item 380092072109 its got twin v8's and 1000hp, it should keep your rescue boat in touch with the hydroplane
