Sporty legs?!

Right, i wanna talk legs, fast legs. with mercury, there are options of a Speedmaster, or Sportmaster legs. both are more streamline then the standard, and enhance performance. Which is great. but i havent found anything similar for Yamaha ouboards such as the V-max's. i no they have a special leg anyway, but its not half as impressive as the merc's.
Any ideas?

cheers

James

Might be worth

posting the question on www.boatmadforum.co.uk in the technical Q&A section. Amidst the bullshit and name calling (so rather like RIb.net then ) there's some good advice to be had there, particularly on the more high performance end of boating.....

Funny, thats exactly what Captain Chaos proposed on Boatmad.
So....

Either great minds think alike....
Codprawn is actually Captain Chaos. (Which I dont think is the case since I know of people who have actually met the caped crusader)
...or Codders is recycling advice from others!

I wouldn't bother with a nosecone much below 70 mph - might even lose performance and IMHO would not gain any performance advantage.
