First Barefoot behind the 85 S&S

Thanks to all the TT'ers out there who gave me advice and ideas...and to those whose threads I read over and over. With your help, I have her running pretty good. And with the glassy water in the morning, I thought I'd give it a shot. So glad that I did.

Nice boat, nice run. Was the camera balanced, or did you have an observer?

Thanks and Thanks.

Its a GoPro with a suction cup mount on the windshield. BEST money I've ever spent on a camera. I love it!

Nice run!

Do you have a mirror so he doesn't have to keep looking over his shoulder?

Haha. Yeah, it was early and muggy and the front windshield kept fogging up. So he was already standing to see out the front. Was surprised that the GoPro stayed mounted with all the moisture.

Did you do anything to the engine? Or does the 85 S&S have a fast top end?
