That's not hanging about is it! Did you get it airborne?  {-)

For reference, what are the specs for the boat and gear please?

By 'specs' of the model, I just meant the length and weight. It looks like the HFM Pilot launch, that has recently been erelaunched  (no pun intended!) bt Speedline. I just don't know what size it is.
As for the gear, if you can get two hours and that kind of performance, it would be a nice reference for anyone powering the same, or a similar sized model.
