That makes a change hey kurt pmsl
On another note the F1 is nearly there just finishing off a couple of bits and its ready to fire up again and check the cooling system etc so its looking promising
Too be honest im a little bit nervy not raced with other boats before and certainly not driven round bouys might end up me hitting them for a change LOL

Hi phill LOL
will try and get some vids for sure as ill be using them to study the hull and how it handles ets,this will help me to improve the design further
I have got vids of it running and is running well but still needs some fine tuning to get the best out of it

I think it looks very nice O0
ive seen a couple of your vids of it running and from what ive seen it runs as good as it looks. :-)

it dont look like an home build neither, more like a proper professional boat straight from the factory.

If i could build like that i would be a very happy chappy indeed,
infact 1/2 as good would be nice ha ha

Cant wait to see the completed work of art, we don't have a pond big enough in Jersey to fly something that fast on. Maybe knock a couple of finance houses down and it could be done I suppose.
Good luck and I will be watching from time to time to see how things go bud.
Cheers
