Tell us something we don't know, Joan darling

The CZ7 was priced about $180,000 or was it $120,000 - something stupid anyway for what is a pretty basic boat with a set of ullman seats added and a load of electronics - remember pricing it up before and it was certainly WAY overpriced!!!

As to better boats just look around!!!!

Mr. Fuller.

I do know the difference between a KPH,. Mile and Knot. I mean 52 knts stupid. The boat has 500 hp on the back . The knts reading came from the GPS. I have been around a bit longer than you. The boat is based in Belgium becasue its damm site cheaper than the Uk. I was born in the UK
and left when I was 23. When you can handle 500 hp .. alone let me know

SINCERELY

Jonathan

I feel honoured!, a man of your age, experience and knowledge bothering to speak to normal people like me, thanks!

so maybe you can explain how your boat manages 59.85mph, when according to your revs, gear ratio and prop size, your max speed BEFORE slip, is a mere 49mph, which equates to summat like 42mph with 15% slip?

I look forward to your answer, as there are many racing teams who'd kill for that kinda magic.

with respect to your formidable horsepower, you're probably right, I'd be way too scared to operate such an incredible boat.

PS. Don't call me stupid

Is that a roundabout way of saying you don't know!

How very restrained of you JF.

I would suggest getting some more experience before progressing to such big horsepower

eupa.. There is a saying, which I can't quite remember, maybe you can fill in the blanks "Its is better to remain silent and be thought a ......."

- a fool ?
- an idiot?



Jonny Fuller - note I have not given anybody my gear ratios? the boat weighs
2200 kgs and 52 knts with 500 hp is nothing extraordinary.. ... even with the old engines 2*200 hp and with 15" props, I was getting 42 knts. Didnt mean to call you stupid.

Lots of things on this boat are 'custom"

- engines
- tube valves
- removable seats in 3 seconds
- head up gps ( garmin 2010c)
- cabin

I see you are in shepperton- I hail from walton-on thames originally.
