That will make two of us then Dan,not many keen Ribsters around my neck of the woods then.Peters back from France this week-end so he's going to have to pull his finger out to get his new beast fitted out and in the water in time.Is Phil going to be around???.Mines all sorted now been out tonight trying her out again,only managed 5,000 RPM and 44MPH at the week-end.Got my mate from the local Evinrude dealer round last night with his laptop, we plugged it in and found that I was only getting 65% of throttle.did some adjustments it now revs to 6,000RPM and does 51.2 MPH and it gets there like the clappers.

Hi Dan, Wayne. I'm up for a trip to the airshow. I would go direct from Brightlingsea. Only trouble is that i have to be a the dentist on the Saturday (in Clacton as it happens for about 10.00am) may be able to alter this. Sounds like a silly question but is the airshow on on the Saturday as last time this trip was floated on the forum I got the impression that it was a Thursday and Friday!

Hi Keith,it was originally going to be the Friday 27th,but a Saturday for most is proberly easier.I shoud'nt think that it will start until PM so that will give you time t get over the laughing gas.I will find out exactly what time it starts and post it later.

Friday is probably better for me than Saturday anyway so I too will be taking the Friday off work (as long as i can get my boss to sign it off today). Perhaps Dan and Phil I can hook up with you on the way?- I will be bringing crew and may have to go a little slowly.

Hi Keith,

Yes, good idea, Dan and I will come over to Brightlingsea and we'll go in convoy from there. We'll sort timings out nearer the time.
