Super Spartan First Launch

Jimmy 70's first launch was a complete success. The motor functioned just fine, the boat planed out very quickly, and we got out top speed of about 22 mph. The boat handled very well and will be much fun for both the granchillin and the grandparents. The video is Rich piloting the boat. After a bit of convincing, he climbed in and had a great time.

This is a very fun boat with even that little 9.8 hp fishing motor. It will be a blast for this season and probably next. I'm running a 9x9 two blade prop and I'll be looking for a 9x11 later on for a little more speed. Right now the throttle is slightly limited so a little more prop will work out nicely.
