Widened the stance

Different type of Bouchie pipe

New tank, Thanks to Mark Bullard who built a complicated tank to be able to carry more fuel..

Some mild sleeve work

Doc I think you need a longer antenna, I still have some of the original BruLine antenna material in bulk lengths (64") if you need it! HA
See you in January
Thanks John

Doc,

So how fast did you get the 45-SAW boat to go thru the traps?
Did the boat track better with the booms out a little wider?
Any of the new ABC's work good?

Thanks,

Mark Sholund

Mark, I went 104.8

I never got the boat strolling on the narrow stance due to other issues at the previous trials.

Ran a 2321

Then tried a 2323 and the boat launched well got up on half pipe and gave a little to much left, flipped and broke the boom tubes and was done.

Water got too rough Sun

I think it will turn the 2323 well

Doc,

 

Thanks for the reply.

The 2321 was buzzing quite well with the Bouchie pipe?

So you think the 2323 has potential?

What do you think about trying a 2223 and see if the motor 

will step up even more rpm?

We have found sometimes we put too much diameter on the boat

and we cannot get the rpm that the pipe likes to run at. With the

Bouchie pipe it may want even more load to make really haul the mail.

Testing will tell you more next time.

 

Thanks For Sharing The Information Doc,

Happy Holidays,

 

Mark Sholund

Yes the 2223 May work well especially since it was up on the 2323
