  1. House is rented and I dont live there anymore sorry guys life got busy
  2. Does anyone want this boat in their personal collection? It's up for sale if yah do. Have bigger and better things in my life I would like move on to. It runs and goes just needs refining.
  3. Put it up for a poll tom after leadfoot I've got nothing planned so I dont care when it is. @Testament
  4. Thread dredge. Paddock is dryer then a nuns at the moment. I've chopped the grass right back down so we just need to come up with a date to re visit this.
  5. Do nothing but get running and bring it all covered in shit.
  6. Nah mate hasnt been for a few years. Ol mate three on them trees ain't keen no more.
  7. I'm unsure if I'll do both nights this year either
  8. I dont think I have anything to sell to be honest. Swap site is just fun to camp at rather then out in show grounds.
  9. Been waiting for you to start one as always ben! You know I'll be there
  10. So had this out at Arapuni with the lads for new years. It ran ok still needs engine work just doesn't have the HP to boogey like I'd like it to.
  11. I to was amazed by how .5 of a mm made all the difference! I'm actually interested to learn more about pitch angle and impeller design now because obviously the smallest of changes make improvements
  12. .50mm radius. Was snug fitment. Squeeled like a pig for 30 seconds or so on first start at lake today had to do some self clearenceing
  13. Mkii testing successful. Was raining and cold but testing needed to be done. Engine still needs tuning but otherwise am happy at current state
  14. It's all a process of elimination now as to why it didn't have full boost. So today brazed the impeller tips up and re machined them in the lathe. Hopefully It makes a difference tomorrow for test run mkii
  15. Yeh they at the back of the boat I only had 35 litres in today so maybe quarter of what it would be full and still struggled
  16. Today went well in my opinion. There is definitely work to be done. Running to hot at 3/4 throttle around 100c (new motor so not going to limiter bash it) I believe it's the pressure valve feeding heat exchanger which I'll remove and attempt again. Needs a good tune by someone who actually knows carbs well (not me). Was taking to long to get on a plane once up was reasonable but once bogged down it took to long to regain that speed. Pics cos they cool as.
  17. Had the boat running up to temp today just to check for leaks etc. Ran real nice. Will take it out to Lake Tomarata tomorrow afternoon to do a water test. Looking forward to it!!!
  18. Was solid good decision to have night off and clean garage. Can crack back into final calibration tomorrow night
  19. Shoddily tig welded on the work machine a quick stainless t junction for a tell tail line out the back of boat. Having a night off boat tonight going to use the time to clean the garage this past week I've made a pretty solid mess in there need to put all my tools back on their places to carry on next few days
  20. Theres one there. It runs under the seats etc. I always prefer reach around
