ive found that these aerokits hulls run better if you fit some spray rails to the hull , it helps get them onto the plane , hence a little less power being used !

A freind of mine has similar boat, he tried his, minus the spray rail, didnt handle too well, but once he retrofitted them, it behaves itself quite nicely now.

at the waterline it could quite easily back fill the exhaust system & engine when the boat is at rest in the water !

That's looking terrific and great to see the Irvine 61 in there, I hope you will do a video when it's all up and running....    :}

Stunning ! It just shows you what a great piece of design these were and with the right engine they can certainly motor... nice work !  :-))
