Oh what a Day, finally got it wet ,,,
Had.a Blow out on the car on way down 2 mins from my junction,,, easy to do once you empty all your boaty bits out of he boot lol...
She run like a dream,, no issues apart from intermittent power trim, sort that in morning,
Had a freind with a zapcat, tag along great fun, but hey it's hard graft them little things,
Weather was good sun came out quite a lot, sea was moderate,, occasionally slight gave me a chance to put it through its paces ,,
Hit the Magic speed of 48.8 knots. Not bad in a force 4 in the Bristol Channel , took some nuts to,hold it there tho,,, was getting slapped on the head by my passenger,,
So I chilled out and done the sensible thing,,
I appear to be getting a lot of spray from back of transom ,, may need to lift engine up 1 hole, (more speed if I do) but it was strange the way it was spraying up, have filmed it , sure I set engine cav plate. 2" above base line as I do with most of my set ups,, was dark and tired when I got it back in,,
It was as if I was dragging sumat tho,,,
All in all great build again, just need to check eng height and some wiring gremlins,
One happy chap right now, body aches tho,,,,,,big time
MY BIGGEST WORRY IS THAT MY WIFE(WHEN I"M DEAD)WILL SELL MY TOY'S FOR WHAT I SAID I PAID FOR THEM.
