You'll know better than me Alan, but 70 MPH from a pair of 260's is good speed - would you get that speed from a wave piercer?

Thanks for the comments guys - my wife was expecting to have Sunday evening and a lot of Monday to herself and the dog but she was glad I was safe!

We are expecting close to 60MPH and we are 90 Feet with 2 x 500 hp.

I do know the engines you are using and would worry about "landing hard on its side" too many times. If Goodheart takes off for any reason we are going to have a big problem. As they say, the bigger the boat, the harder the fall. The shock loadings on mechanical componants is huge on a side ways impact compared to a level landing

We always look at the averages of life. For what we do, it is of no importance to how fast we travel but for how long. We have to keep it all going for at least 800 hours with little or no maintainance at sea.

I do like the look of your boat, do you have any line drawings for something twice the size?

Kevin has the drawings all in Rhino and I'm sure we could do something for an enquiry - email me at cookee@bananasharkracing.com or Kevin at kitten@bananasharkracing.com with what you need to go in it and when he's got some time (that's the difficult bit) he'll look at it!

Alan, PM me what rough sizes you want to know at what UIM length before five, and I can get them for you tonight, either that or it will have to be after the w/end as I'm off to Torquay for the racing.
