Well done mate, Looking forward to hear what speeds you get from the 50hp. I guess you've still got another few hours to put on the clock until you can have a burst of full throttle.

Boat looks brilliant.

Thanks Mojo. Still need to get a few more hours on it below 3000rpm but must admit I did give it full throttle for just a bit.. 30+ on the phone gps and need a bigger prop.

Proper trials to come...
