Took the red Hydro out Friday to CFW. Good times!

Thanks to Ray for giving Debbie the ride of her life in in the blown Alky hydro.
Also for showing me where to go. Thanks Andy for all the help.

Turned 6100 RPM fastest. That comes out to 120 MPH at 0 slippage, 108 MPH at 10%, 102 MPH at 15%.

Still has plenty left, just starting to fly good when I lifted. But like Andy said, "Crawl, then walk, THEN run!"

Sorry we did not make it back Saturday, but I found out I have to leave Monday for work, so we went on home to get ready.

See you guys next time!

It was nice meeting you and Debbie Fri. Your boat looks and runs great. Hope to see you guys soon. Bill

Same to you Bill!

I hope to have the prop changed and the GPS speedo and recall installed for next time. :)devil

Hmm,
Ya know, I forgot to calculate the 22% gears into that speed.

Comes out to 124.44 MPH at 6100 RPM and 15% slippage.
I don't think we were going that fast, but maybe! It was sure getting blurry!

Just a note dont get caught up in all the math take it to the track @ Ming in sept. and the only slip you will get is a time slip. Be safe and have fun!!:D

Yeah, no kidding. I have a GPS speedo and re-call to install though.
