First Run - Posted: 17th Sep 2017
Hi Guys
Well today is the day.
CG of the boat at 410mm from the bow and it sits in the water on the waterline.
Cruised of at a slow pace with camera man taking pics.
Up to 1/3 throttle and up on the plane, nice smooth turns with the rudder.
Water flying all over the place!!
Up to 1/2 throttle and sitting up nice on the plane.
The boat handling as smooth as butter, the spray of water from the boat is about the same as one with spray rails.
Pop up to full throttle and well pass scale speed, but by this time the camera man was not keeping up to the job.
Totally happy with the boat, but still requires a few bits to finish the job.
Enjoy the pics and happy boating.
