Mart, The aerobatics were caused after I hit a steel pole at close to 60 mph. We're sending that video to you've been framed.  8).  Only got a scratch on the hull ( I build em tough) but wrecked the rudder and strut when it landed on the concrete bank, good job it wasnt a woody!.  The OMRA race that was won was last Sunday at Telford 29th April. You'd have to look up the results to see the driver. My lips are sealed. ::)

I think i allready know the drivers name lol ,fishes come to mind lol,you should have left the flip in the video it would have been fun to watch.where did the pole come from, kids or has it allways been there?.Good to know the hull can take that sort of punishment though.I think the woody is strong enough i know ian has flipped his and landed on the bank a cpl of times with not much damage ,good thing about ply is it flexes just enough and wont crack easy.Ive hit all manner of things in a 14 ft speed boat built from marine ply and had a few holes punched through it and it held together pretty well and took lots of abuse so dont underestimate the woody  ;).My next one will probably be an epoxy hull made from my own mould to my design.It all depends on the funds available to me,i did think of making this one into a mould and do an epoxy version i doubt it would be in the same league as your hulls but id like to have a go.

Buried at each end of our lake we have 3 vertical steel poles that are used by the yachters. They stick up about 300mm and make life interesting with a fast boat if you use up all of the lake.

Ask them to change them for plastic, that's what we use at our pond. They flex enough unless you really hit them head on. We drop polystyrene floats over them for race day.

Nice running video Dave  ;D

either use Polly floats or the next time a boat hits one and gets impaled on it leave it there as a reminder not to do it again hehe ;)

Dave is quoting at 295 in epoxy and 395 in Carbon / Kevlar. For the hull. Not too bad really.

Yeah they are fast little things Richard, not sure of how practical they are though, suspect it is the type of boat that spends more time being set up and repaired than being out on the water.

I have never run one (Yet!), the hydro's seem more popular in the US than here.

Do you fancy a go at one?

No thanks Glenn I will stick to the warships.
Nowhere down here where you can use them.
Gave them up in the 70s, still finding the odd engine etc.
