I finished my XP8 a couple years ago. Up until last summer I've been using a Merc110, getting speeds just over 25MPH. This winter I finished rebuilding a 1950's Mercury Mark 25, and should get the boat going around 35MPH. Sometime this summer I will finish my 1950's racing engine, a Mark 15H. That should push me over 40MPH, and I could use the MK25 powerhead on the H tower... That would be reeeaaaalllly fast. Can't wait to try it out.
Yep, I have many photos. My brother has a telephoto lens on this 35mm, so we have some nice shots from the rowboat. As a matter of fact, he has a Pee Wee (I'll send one of those pictures too). The Pee Wee has a 1997 Johnson 9.9HP on it and goes slightly faster than my XP-8 with a 70's Mercury 9.8HP. I'll send a couple now, if you want more, just let me know. Have I mentioned I'm only 19 (I was 17 when I comlpeted construction)? I did all the work myself. Only help I got was my brother helped me flip it during construction.
