    "Finished 5ltr/NM"

    Does that mean you are looking for fuel efficiency, not speed ?

    Don't let Hoyt see this. (sorry, OP, an inside joke.)

    um, when does she get power?

    Thats good - so perhaps a few more details of planned performance besides fuel consumption would be fun.

    Well, why are the sponsons designed for wavewacking and out of wood? Looks cool, I'd like one that could dive....:D

    "Finished 5ltr/NM"

    "5 litre is the hydroplane class. Don't see any fuel consumption given. There's 5 litre, 6 litre, etc. Think NM is National Modified class."

    not 5 litres per nautical mile ...... there you go, I learn something every day :)

    Thanks Impish -

    Pity - I thought we were getting some craft designed to saving our precious fuel - not chewing it up and spitting it away for no good reason. :-(
