I found some props around will play a little ,trial and error.Check previous post for details.

thanks rob,it was around 30mph but we did know that we will not make more before we change the prop.
Acceleration was good but we did not push it to much since it was the first run of this engine this long.
I will re-try with another prop this week.

sounds great kiteklan , im sure with a few adjustments the performance will improve but 30 mph is ideal for skiing and more than enough pace for wakeboarding ....excellent project and even more impressive time frame , well done .

How much water was in the bilge after due to the stuff box and rudder box drip?

What is your intended use for the boat? It appears that you are set up for wakeboarding.

If you get a clearer picture of the underneath of the dash and mark what items you're trying to clean up, I'm sure the folks here can help with that.

Congrats on a successful first voyage.

It's always cool to see a project progress quickly, especially considering how unique this is.

Where was the video shot? Is that fresh water or salt water?
