Nice Pics. Knock on wood.... But, you ever capsize going so fast and flying like that?

Your pics appear that you are out solo. Your second pics shows you so far forward. Do have an aftermarket extended tiller?

Nice pics again.. Looks like a rush.

Im not solo. If you click on the pics and enlarge it you will see me firmly planted to the floor behind my dynamic ballast (Martin is his name ) Thank god for foot straps!!!
I do have an extended tiller-you will get a glimpse of it on the pics i posted on your last thread.

That particular landing was quite hard as it landed on the sponson at over 45deg angle because my friend managed to put his weight on that side mid flight . But on a normal flat landing it is supprisingly soft, even from an 8ft high flight. Due to the hull shape, they create an air cushion underneath them. Best way i can explain it is- If you drop a sheet of 8+4 ply flat on the ground it doesnt slam due to the air cushion-same applys with these tunnel hulls.
To be honest, i really cant understand why these arent more popular.

Great pictures! Someday I'd love to strap the max hp my cat-SIB is rated for (80 hp) and see what she can do with 2 up & minimum gear.
