    Lord, I wish we had had seats like that!!

    I found it way too directionally stable at speed. We needed about half a mile to make a uturn at speed. Have you done anything to get it to turn?

    Got a shot of the underside sitting on the trailer?

    and do put up a video on youtube. The current crop are rather conservative.

    What is the top speed? Can you take it full throttle?

    so far i've gotten 30mph, with 1/3 of the throttle left...changing from a 12 to a 10 pitch prop and adding more tab will hopefully stop my porpoising issue and will allow me to get somewhere in the 35-40mph range...which i will be very happy with...i will know by the end of the week
