Gordon, I like that.

I hope the lid fits tightly; you wouldn't want any of that nasty salt water to get in there.

What size Rib are you putting it in?
It will be interesting as the Arctic Blue did 80 Knots...

Thank you all for your positive & encouraging comments,the credit for the rigging must go to my partner in GB Performance Marine Mr Bruce Baker.The Ilmor revs to 5800 rpm's.The offset is the same as all of Revenger's inboard boats of the last 27 years (except those with duoprop drives) which is 1.5 inches.yes it is in the stepped hull.We hope to be doing some preliminary sea trials within the coming week.

All white? Florida style?

29 inches!! I think not!...you appear to have missed the joke.

The all new Phantom will be closer to 33', and unlike mr revenger, the copyright is legit on my phantom (bet you didn't know Sloggit never paid Shead for the design did you? Sloggits name was dirt at DSD)
