thank you biggles!! Nos, i got 37 knts at 5300 rpm, need more speed!!i dont think there is any difference , this boat does weigh more, the consol is really heavy and carrying 66 lts ,so maybe that combined is a contributing factor but overall really pleased!!

It rides about the same as mine looking at the video. Looks awesome too!

I think we need to meet up and bring a prop spanner so we can play with a couple of my props and see what we can get it to do. .

hi matt nice searider, job well done.

Ive been luck enoth to try 3 sizes of prop on mine, the best all rounder was a 17" titan stainless, has given me 40kts light or 38knts with 80ltrs fuel 1 on board. the standard allum prop was giving 36kts

The good thing with the titan is the grip in the routh stuff and the acceleration, plus it wots at 5100 @ 40kts

hope i get your pics for your spare aframe (mines been destroyed)

Hi Matt,
great looking rib.
You wrote that the transom board was refit.
It means, the wooden inside was changed or it was sealed and reconditioned?
I am wondering , if the transom board could be pulled out .
Mine was converted to short shaft and i have to do some work to fit a longsahft again.

Greetings from Germany
Mike

Beautiful job Matt.

If you ever get tired of the comfort of that console - give me a shout. lol.

You make me feel very guilty as I have done next to nothing on mine this winter. Having said that I have no garage and also have a 12 week old son in the house so maybe not overly guilty. I have checked her over and she can safely go back in the water for another years abuse.

Thank you again for showing us what can be done with these work horses. BTW if you can let us know how your prop tests pan out I would be very grateful as I have the same model Yam on mine but don't want to go stainless as there are one or two rocks around here and I like to get in close.

Ian
