    No pics, it was just the GF and myself so no camera. It was her first time out with the boat so had her hold it while parking the truck, she did good and she said she had fun even though it was short.
    Looking forward to seeing you out there the more help the better.
    Thanks
    Bob

    850 to 900 HP and MPH is not known yet it has only been wet once since put together and I didn't run it very hard the first time out.
    Thanks for the compliment.

    Default good run

    Well the water wasn't the best, and pretty windy too. But lauched it anyways with the GF and cruised around the choppy lake for a while, made a couple good short runs through the canyon and it ran damn good but like I said not to much good water to really let it fly.
    Couldn't get the GPS to work and it probably didn't matter much anywys.
    The boat was pulling very hard and kept pulling when I ran out of good water so don't really know what it can do yet with the current set up. I need to bump the timing up to about 42* from the 36* and see what it does next time, should help quite a bit.
    Now it's time to change the oil and filter, run the valves again, torque every nut and bolt, wash and polish it again.
    Sure wish someone would buy this thing and take it to Firebird this November and have fun with it as I am done, just don't have the time to do it as often as I would like to, nor do I have the time to propery maintain it after each time it goes out (of course I will until someone else takes it off my hands). Maybe when the kids get old enough to either enjoy this stuff with me, or take me in a different direction (of their choice) then I will get another flat, just can't see it sitting here not being used for which it is itended for.
    I would even consider letting someone (with sanctioned racing experience) take it to firebird and run it just to get it dialed in and see what it can really do. Of course they will need to cover all expence's that it take's to enter and run, including oil, plugs, and fuel just to name a few. Could be fun

    Yeah, I think it would be fun to really dial it in at the track instead of the lake or river to see if I did a good job building a boat. At least I would have some good numbers to go by.
