34 kts in an sr4 feels MUCH FASTER than it really is.

It was interesting how closely matched our two sr4's were on top speed. Whoever buys "White Streak" off you is going to have loads of fun.

Just uploading video to youtube now - 45 minutes for 3 mins 43 secs worth.....



Cant wait to see any of yours.

Interesting the difference between the two boats - both seemed to hit 34 knts at the top end. Not sure if were both running the same prop , but you had a fair amount of weight in the bow - so think yours was running flatter where as I was more 'out of the water'.......

It does go to show you can take an SR with Jonnyrude to the needles and bring it back the right way up - although some moves were in homage to the flippy one....

Still puts a huge smile on my face.....and yes its for sale

NEXT !!!

Thanks Ian. It's a veho muvi hd.

Yet another go pro alternative, but a fraction of the cost with good enough results for my occasional use.

Looks fun, had a run out from Southampton today with Trever and my Brother in law, took the Sr4 round to Yarmouth for lunch at the Weathshief great day out on the water flat carm
Used about 25 lt, agree they are such a blast it's like driving a go kart

What gb card do you use?
How long does battery last?

8gb in it at the moment. Had a 16 in it at times. Battery seems to do about 2 hours with screen off, running at 30fps in 1080. Can do 60fps in 720.

Comes with a remote so tend never to use a full charge....remote means I don't record hours of boring footage.
