    Breaking News! Dead boat penalty?

    Kim and I pit for each other, so we have our strategy down pretty close and its ever changing with the heat at hand! The last race we attended .I was late on the start, tight on the buoys, (4 boat heat). I entered the front straightaway and I ran into (sideswipe) my good friends son 21 blackbird! He fell off of the pipe lane 2 mid turn. buoy 8/9,. EVERYBODY MISSED THE SLOW BOAT EXCEPT ME!!! Nobody called slow boat, their eyes were on the start just up ahead. IT HAPPENS (could have been avoided) One really needs to quickly announce (dead boat, slow boat, wild boat ,Etc), along with a host of great technics from all the posts above! "COMMUNICATION"

    Shane, Robert/mike question/input is the right direction your tanks need to be replumbed internally to where your fuel pickup is located in the left rear corner with at least 1/8" clearance from tube end .The clunker in the middle and not stationary is sucking air, you want see it until your on the second tank! the clunker works if 180 deg. to rear left corner. The brass tube set up is way better Rick

    Shane, I should have ask you what strut setup are you running, sorry. What I had experienced in the past was I sealed around shaft log where it passes through the back of the transom, it trapped water in the boat and after a few laps it would die, of course when you go pick up your boat in the retrieve boat it would have water in it, so I was not sure what was really going on. I was running the Speedmaster stinger type adjustable strut, after looking at other set ups by other people I removed all the RTV from around the shaft where it passed through transom and the boat self drained problem was gone I was thinking keep the inside as dry as possible,i did not want to test my radio box seals every time it would die,out of fuel ect. I created my problem! not saying this is yours just asking. Rick

    just out of curiosity,(1) around the strut area is there room for the water to pass out of the hull by the strut/shaft log, or strut. (2) did you (SILICONE AROUND STRUT /SHAFT LOG) ? (3) Strut bringing it in due to splashing or forcing the water inward from the face of the strut ? I also had a problem with my Dubro manuel pump I would have to loosen screws on housing from time to time it would free up re snug screws all good . I don't know Rick

    Breaking News! Dead boat penalty?

    Here in Houston, the nitro and electric group is small, Our local club is mainly gas boats. L.S.M.B.C. runs a split program (TWO SEPARATE DAYS OF RACING) To the comments above, instead of bringing to many boats for a two day event its split. Day one for the Nitro lineup they will schedule all Hydro's , the second day they will run the mono's! you get to complete one day of hydro's cleanup put away done! Day two all the mono's Trophies are awarded at the end of each day. its different but it does let you concentrate/focus more on your program of racing! I hope I'm not to far off of Andy's post THAT'S AT LEAST 4 BOATS TOTAL OR MORE and time to cleanup each evening without killing yourself, And yea you actually get to take time for fellowship and eats for the family!
