New to the forum, and I would like to introduce myself.
I'm Pim, 30 years old and living under sea level in The Netherlands.
I earn my living as a technical trainer at a large Dutch boat equipment supplier.
Active on the water since I was ten years old as a sea-scout where I am still active today as the fleet manager. (Tugboat, classic dutch sailing boats and a dutch sloep)
Recently I was able to acquire a SIB which was returned under warranty. A v-quipment VB300 with Aluminium floor.
Since to boat may only handle 9,9hp it did try the handling and weight of a longtail 15hp. Since this al went well at 30km/h topspeed, i purchased the f15 shorttail.
Which runs great with 35km/h with zero modifications.
Since it's always possible to let it run better I hope to acquire a lot of information about trimming, engine position and props.
After bringing up the engine position by 9,5cm top speed increased to 43km/h
I will start a fresh topic about my boat.
Mvg, Pim Bonne
