My VB300 F15 quest

After a small introduction, I will hereby start my thread regarding my set-up.
Most of the fun is learning how to improve the performance and all the trail and error associated with it. I really like the thundercat/zapcat boats and the tuning surrounding those boats.

So my standard V-quipment VB300 with 9,5cm raised transom.
Made a transom block, which is mounted on the stern using four 30cm long stainless 10mm rods.
The rods i've drilled with a long drill-bit using a guidance bracket and glued in the holes using epoxy resin.
To make sure the multiplex would not delaminate I made stainless steel front and back reinforcement plates and mounted the engine through the transom using 4 stainless bolts.
Next to that I will connect the transom to the aluminium floor using two stainless turnbuckles (if that's the right english word).

Doing so prevents tube flexing on heavy loads and the power is transferred trough the transom and aluminium floor to the tubes.

This will not break during this season. In the winter I'm planning to make a custom transom from composite material to save weight and gain strength.

Goals are to optimize the F15 and achieve excellent handling and speed.
It needs to be able to drive gently with the wife and hard with the boys.

Did Some investigation on a tacho.
Could go for a Tinytach but decided to go a other route.

Because I wanted to be able to view other engine data without having to route bundles of cables through the SIB I looked for a CAN communication solution. Which I found.

By using a Noland engineering analog to CAN converter and a KUS multifunction Tacho. I can read out the following parameters: rpm, coolant temp, oil temp and oil pressure.

The Tacho i will fit in a Box under my bench and I only have to route one cable to it via sockets. Doing so enables me to take of the motor easily.
