Someone wanted to pay by western union and then post the boat to Nigeria, the seller thought this might be dodgy, surely not!

Have to agree with Fuller, that set up was quite common on raceboats. 70mph is utter bollox. If it did 50 I'd be gobsmacked. It ain't got the hull length or the horses to do very much other than scare someone s**tless!

Just because the claimed speeds sparked me memory. How about this for a run www.yukon800.com 70mph from a 50hp and it's got to be the only race that states in the rules you have to carry an axe and a gun with at least ten rounds of ammo yehaaaa

Look at the length of the hulls and pitch of the props! There's plenty of money and hours of fine tuning gone into those things. So how's that 'Black Tub' on Ebay gonna do 70mph?

Do calm down, only said claimed speed jogged my memory and I thought people would find it interesting. never tried to justify "black tub".
Read aloud for the class "Just because the claimed speeds sparked me memory."

What does hull length have to do with it on a planing hull? Thought hull length only governed speed on displacment types.......

Exactly so a shorter hull should be quicker - less stable though!!!
