Hankinson Miss Chris

Post by Stevengould46 » Sat Sep 18, 2010 4:00 am

I finally finished my Ken Hankinson 26' triple. It sat on the waterline as it should and ran very smoothly. I'm still breaking in the engine and getting the pitch right on the prop but I measured 40 MPH at 4000 prm. Whoohoo! I'll try to post a photo.

I'd like to be able hitch up the trailer and run down to TN this weekend but it is a long way from Long Island. I'm working on getting a site with photos.
