Hi Mark

I'm not running in Buxton as the local club, who seem to have exclusive rights to the municipal pond, don't allow ic, steam (!*!/#?) and fast electric. As I race FE with NADS I have to trim radios etc. from scratch at the race meeting. It's a pain but ho hummm...

0.21 on a gearbox you are looking at a 43" Hull (typically a Challenger 43 Pro) with surface drive or something like a Crusader, Sea Spirit or Cavalier for submerged drive, we presently have a Cavalier amongst our ranks running an OS 21 outboard as well, we also have a surface drive Bat B28 competing as well as a Challenger 31 all running very well. As Mark says the freeboard only applies to submerged drive boats, would be good to see you at Nottingham in a few weeks, if you can make it come and ask plenty of questions, we don't mind one bit.  :-))

Thanks everybody. Can't make Nottingham as I have a date clash, which will be the case for most of next year as well. I'll definately come to races when I can in prep for 2014. Mean time expect lots of questions!

At BMPRS we haven't sorted our race dates for next season yet (normally done at our AGM in November) so hopefully too many won't clash, pop along whenever you like, questions we don't mind...... that's what it's all about, helping each other out  :-))
