New records!

Been up to Coniston to set a record and came back with two!

RIB Sport Professional 90.418 89.873 = 90.15 average

Outboard Immersed Propeller Monohull 92.207 90.932 = 91.57 average

The second one is for any monohull, not just a RIB, and was set with just me in the boat. Engine was a Mercury 2.5 Offshore rated at 280 HP on our race boat which was weighed at 970kg - photos to follow soon - here's one of the rig on the way back yesterday.

By the way the RIB record is basically the old Formula 1 RIB class, but up to 300 HP to allow our European friends race against us.

Only British for now - the mono one doesn't have UIM recognition ............... yet! Just have to get the RYA to lobby the UIM and I'll have a world record .......... maybe!

Here's a photo of the fastest recorded mono immersed outboard in the country!

ps Thank you for the kind comments everyone!

Good man John! well done to you and the team.

Does having a speed record now mean you are as clever as the FGT (I miss him BTW)
