By the way Paul - who has the fastest tubes you've made? I have a feeling mine would be close on official timing, but do you have any other customers with faster than 91.5mph on GPS for instance?

before we changed the shape of the tube end and added deflecters to redirect the force of the spray at the stern ,nine layers of fabric was not strong enough

Great photos Paul.

As I said when I was with you picking up the Aquaflyte, the new website is a major improvement - nice one

Outboard just arrived for Aquaflyte (as have seat pods) so should have enough material for a refurb thread on here soon.

Gutted

Poor b*gger - that's really tough luck. Did the b@stards get his new trailer as well or was it nicked from on the water.

Course I'll post some piccies as it starts to take shape although at the moment I've just moved house so there is some pressure to empty boxes before playing with toys
