Thanks Mollers!

Hi Fred - I don't think that's me - As far as I know it's the first record I've ever had! Besides my name is spelt Cooke! You'll be pleased to know we make those hulls, so email me for a quote! Which record do you want to go for with what motor(s)?

As I said above that 91.5mph record isn't recognised by the UIM - yet!

Yes the tubes are in the water at rest, with full fuel tank (160 litres) most of the transom is submerged. We run a Stainless marine jack plate and a set back bracket as well.

The transom measures 65 inches inside the tubes.
