    ok I'm home and no pic but I got some numbers. Things went ok but theres still alot of work to do. Frist of all I think that the prop was a little big. But I only got 5mph gps fom stock. 68.8 was the best I got. I know there is alot left in it but something is not quite right. I need to talk to Whipple on monday.

    Damn Brayden, for your first run without any tuning I'd say that's damn good for a big boat like yours. You'd beat me and I'm a quarter your size.....boat that is....

    Thanks but my real goal was 75 mph gps. I still think that I might have a chance. I did find some more things out allready and I cant weight to get back out there. I might get really crazy and make it back out tue of this week. Thats only if it does not rain. If not theres allways this weekend. I'm on a mission now. Once I fell I got the motor just right I will start working on getting it proped right. There is still lots left in her. I just hope my goal it not to far out there.

    I was on the fence for like 2 months about whether
    or not to pull the trigger on the same kit.

    I opted not and went a completely different route
    (I sold my boat and bought a new one. Not to mention, whipple aint giving those things away)
    but I'm dying to see what would/could/might
    have been...

    I'd like to have a 710 in my 26. It would be fast, no doubt mid 90's. Oh well, I'm going to leave my HO alone and enjoy trouble free mid 70's, without a boat payment

    BTW, Your Nordic is a good looking boat. Nice colors
