So, has the new rudder helped out with the problems you have experienced yet?

Hi mate havent tried it yet hopefully next week sometime ill post the results to keep you informed  ;).i think this rudder will be better as its a lot deeper and a little wider too.i also moved it in towards the centre more so hopefully it wont cause as much drag on the right, ive also  sharpened the leading edge more and also the botom of the rudder blade has been made v shaped rather than flat as i mate has done some tests in a test tank with a full size boat designer and came up with some very interesting results regarding rudder placement and such like.

Hi guys i just put the decals on my boat this morning and thought id post a few pics of it.the theme was thought up with my son in mind  and the decals were made by a good friend in the states who made them to my design for me.he also takes orders for custom made decals to your design requirements if anyones interested ill pass on his email.hes a nice guy and his prices are very reasonable.

Hi Mart,

Looks good, now try running round the buoys at race speed!

I tried yesterday and have got some battle scares to show for it and got some serious air.

Have a look at my pre tuned post and video link.

I will try and get the tuned one uploaded tonight.

Whats next for you? Are you going to build that cat?

Regards

simon as you noticed im a bit nervous of going flat out in the turns, too many ducks and too many old fellas with little boats who dont seem scared i might run over there little boats and destroy em.i really need to get there midweek so i can try and get the lake to myself to really open her up.im not bothered about bouys either ive no desire to race whatsoever im in this for a bit of fun and a relaxing drive round the lake.wait till you flip youres you wont be in a hurry to do it again i can asure you especially in salt water  ;).im off to check out your vid is this of the big boat or the nitro?.

i almost forgot to say,next for me will be maybe a large cruiser for another petrol motor,maybe using the pt boat hull and a home design for the top structure im undecided yet.im not going to build the cat unless someone wants me to build it for them!!,by the way anyone interseted in decals the guy who did mine shipped me those for $9 and they were free to me as a favour for favours done etc.if you want any he would charge $30 for decals of a similar scale etc.$40 all in is dam good try getting them for that here!!.

the cat would be nice but id need a zen to make it move and funds wont allow at the moment ,i made this boat on a tight budget despite people telling me it couldnt be done.when i can afford a zen i will build the cat most likely either that or i also have plans from the same guy for a 72"  offshore mono hull  ;D.

Hi Mart,

Dont bother with the expense of a Zen at the moment. Get a good, and i mean GOOD tuned pipe. Mine is a standard Zen with a localpipe expert and it is good for about 45 mph, stock. Start tuning motors and you loose the reliability.

If you want the details of an expert pipe maker i will pm, i have one of is pipes and they are like a turbo!

ive no intention of buying a zen yet simon i value my ba**s too much hehe,as regards the pipe a mate is going to make me one when he recovers from a broken collarbone and im in no rush just yet as im happy with 35 mph.id have said yours was doing over 45 have you had it gps,d?.i know this hull will handles 50 to mid 50s as w3bby has run his with a fully moded zen and although she can get flighty in wind she is pretty stable.the zen is something that will have to wait for a while longer im afraid.you can pm me the price of that pipe if you like just out of interest  ;).

Just buy a second hand CMB90 and pipe and stick that in instaed of a Zenoah. Cheap performance, should get it for about a hundred quid or so. Then your boat'll go some Martin.

Assuming it stays the right way up, of course...

I've not flipped any for a long time. Crashed plenty, probably more than 20, but never flipped. There's always time though. Might even try a hydro one day, should be able to make that fly.

Yeah, just winding you up about yours.

well seeing as this is my first gas boat i dont think im doing too bad the flip wasn't the boats fault it was a combination of the wind and my prop angle i went across the wind and oops now iv got trim tabs i can play some more till i get her set up correctly.the chops quite bad when the wind blows at fleetwood its probably worse than the sea at times.good luck with the hydro they aren't my kind of thing either i prefer boats to look like boats.

Not to worry. No harm done to the boat and noone died. Is the new rudder improving life for you with the boat?

Mart,

Why MPBA? Try OMRA? They have a website and are very quick with setting you uo and giving you the number?
