    I posted some videos of my newly built Rascal runabout a few months back, but I didn't have a good photo showing the boat at speed and how it's trimmed, etc. A friend took the photo below a few days ago and it shows the boat aired out for top speed.

    Engine is a 1961 Mercury 80HP spinning a 22" pitch chopper propeller. Speed in this photo is 52mph (GPS) at 5300 rpm. Anti-ventilation plate is 4.5" above keel/pad and has good water pressure.
