It took a year to get here, just need some soft water, still a couple weeks away from that in northern Alberta. Then it will be time to tear the lake a new one!

Thanks Allen, I have a good selection of props ranging from reasonable and out to what were you thinking?. All my early testing will be reined into the reasonable range.

lovely Boat, the eagles are just one of the best looking outriggers out there, the design is timeless

I’ve run the VAC’s for quite some time, here in Alberta we run either @ 2000 or 3500 feet. I for the most part used the CMB muffled pipe and it worked well at 2000 but when you jumped up to 3500 it struggled for air and got real finicky. I swapped out that pipe for the AA90 parabolic pipe on my 91 NR hydro last year and it worked really well at the higher elevation. Pretty sure it will help my VAC’s too, but will find out for sure when the ice melts.

Probably a good idea, has to be some serious pressure on the turn fin point.

Thanks Brad, the new KEPS is still on the shelf unassembled, work this winter had a bad habit of making a nuisance of itself. It’s painted, just needs some time.
