Thanks for uploading that video, I had wondered how you made those modifications. Looks really cool, and sweet outboard as well! Do you have any idea what the top speed is?

Thanks for the kind words. The boat is slightly underpowered, I get 22mph with a full load , running a 10 pitch 3 blade prop. Looking for something vintage, 60+ hp.

Yeah, nice video. I'll bet the fake woodie probably rides a little better out there on the L.I. Sound.
