Wicked looking Boat!

Looks sort of a cross between a Zapcat and a Wetbike.

What sort of performance do you get out of her - and how does she handle a bit of rough sea?

With 30Hp behind I get about 30mph (from GPS) - and it goes fo hours on very little fuel!

In the "rough" you do tend to get very wet but I've got some new goggles for this year

You get wet because the 2 tubes act as 2 hulls and the water sprays up the middle - just where you are trying to drive!!

If its fine tomorrow i may take her out in Bristol Docks for her first run of the season - and then bring her to London next week - Or I might just catch a lift with Jahno - but I do intend making it there next week - are you comeing?
