Pete
I bet you are just a little bit more than pleased with that performance. Can we please hear a V12 at 6000 RPM.

Alan, yes very pleased with the performance and still not tuned quite right,little bit on the rich side ,but shall sort that out next outing.
I might be able to get a drive by at 6000rpm after school holidays, too busy on the water at the minute,

Greetings Folks, You dont know me but we have just arrived back from a waterskiing trip to Khancoban Pondage where we were privileged enough to meet Pete (& I gather his son?) and see this incredible piece of craftsmanship on the water. When it first pulled up on the trailer the bank was filled full of O'oo's & Ahhh's at the sight of the gleaming hull, then wonder as it launched and powered away gracefully, then absolute amazement as it leapt out of the water when he wound it up to full song. It had us scratching our heads for a while trying to work out the glorious exhaust note as it tore across the lake, and once it pulled in beside us on the beach I noticed the Jaguar "leaper" on the deck and took a wild guess at V12 power. I was right, and then rewarded with a chat and a thorough look over the boat. I'm absolutely blown away by the craftmanship of both the hull and the mechanicals. Everything is so beautifully finished, better than factory, fantastically neat, tidy and professional. An absolute credit to it's builders / owners.

And then Pete asked me if I would mind skiing behind it so he could data-log a run towing someone.... He didn't have to ask twice! The pull out of the hole was nice and soft, and while it's wake is reasonably tall it was soft and clean to ski across. And then we had a magnificient trip around the lake where I got to enjoy the sport I love while listening to that beautiful V12 purr away like the cat it once powered. An incredible experience and I have to admit to being a little awe-struck & lost for words by it all.

So Pete, thanks for letting us experience your beautiful craft and hearty congratulations from me to all involved in the build. Well done and I hope you have many happy years out on the water with her.

Cheers - Pat Sproule - Canberra.

Thanks for the kind words Pat ,
I also enjoyed the chat and company

Pete,

Fantastic pic! I am impressed by how well she lies on her lines. And the background reminds me of the Northern California foothills...

Pete
We are very lucky in Australia that there are very few places with marine noise level restraints. It would be a shame to muffle that music.
