LOL she should fly just hopeing not literally and ending upside down.
I watched a vid other day of a 32" hydro on same setup and hit 55.3 mph so aiming for 50mph,but think it will be a problem once set up  :-))

Hi Daz can i ask what keeps the electrics dry does it have a lid to seal before you add the cowl?.She looks good m8 and the weight sounds fine to me,you might even need to add weight to the front of the sponsons  :}.

Hey mart,if you view reply 13 youll see pics of the lids,which will be taped down before adding the main cowl.
Cg is at 30% as it is,will adjust as soon as iv got it wet and know what shes doing.

That boat looks brilliant.

No way does it look like a homebuilt job.

very professional and very modern looking too.

now looking forward to seeing a video of the boat zoooming across a lake or pond.


very well done. :-))
