4.7m and yes 28 knots I've clocked so far. There could be more if I carried less weight, I've got 2x 22l fuel bladders, 30kg of rubber floor etc so it's not the lightest FC around.
Trailer's working out fine, I haven't tried a beach launch yet which was the main reason for the design. I've always been single handed for launching so far, I'll wait till I've got someone with me for the first time on the beach just in case it gets messy. It does draw a fair bit of water so a decent length of rope back to the car will be needed.
I clamped the go-pro cam to the transom once but it's too low to see anything over the bow so a rethink is required there. I'll see if I've still got the footage and post some of it up anyway if anyone's interested.
Keith - I couldn't do anything with those HD clips you gave me, downloaded a convertor but it was rubbish, nothing I had would play them properly.
