Absolutely incredible, thanks!   :)

Martin,

 

I used my Acoustic Tachometer because of the very clear video sound to get an idea of the engine's max RPM. On each pass, the engine's RPM increased from 26,000+ to 29,000+, which was recorded on the very last pass.  It sounded as if the engine was still pulling as the boat traveled through the speed trap. Congratulations!!

 

Jim Allen
