    A big "thank you" to DBR and Dewald Propellers

    I've got to give Joe Abellera, Dave Bush and Dave Dewald some huge credit for getting my 28 Skater w/ XSs to run as if it had Xs on it. I know there were some not believing the numbers I am getting with my setup, so I set up my Contour camera and went out this morning. You guys get to see what I see from the driver's seat in this video - no BS and I'm not trying to hide anything. My XSs have the new DBR 1.3 version ECU flash, intake rings, aluminum flywheels and tuners swinging a set of 14 7/8" x 35" 4 blade Dewalds. Thanks again Joe, Dave and Dave!

    well done on the great result! and also good to see someone taking safety seriously with helmet and lifejacket.
    it looks in the video that you've got seatbelts on all the seats?

    Thanks guys. Here is the first pass heading into the sun. I was having to find my line through stuff floating in the water, as well as dodging mud hens all over the place! Also passed a boat going the other way about halfway through the run. Just wanted to post this video to show that there was no current on the water I was running today. The first pass didn't quite get 120 (118 or so), but you can see why with all the small direction changes I was making, as well as the boat wakes that unsettled the boat a little. The two passes in the videos are the only two I made, with the second obviously being the faster as I had cleared out the mud hens, and had a straight run through the floating debris that I found on the first pass. Once I saw a fat 120 (was actually just past the 120 mark from my higher perspective of the speedo), I was satisfied and headed home. I've always said that 120 was my goal, and I did it with the back seat in it and the standard hatch on it, so I'm very pleased. No doubt that I had very good conditions today - still/cool air (60 degree temps), 40 gallons of gas on board, no passengers and my wind deflectors were also off (having new Lexan pieces made right now). I don't doubt that I could get another 1-3 out of my setup if I took my back seat out/put the race hatch on and sent these 35s back for some dialing-in (this is the first time I've run these 35s), but this is it for me. I'm very happy with the performance as it is, and I'm not going to go through all the hassle of chasing a bigger number. Plus, my speedo only goes to 120 anyways!

    Dale, I guess the temperature sensor relocation was a positive! Good job!

    It might have helped, but certainly the 1.3 ECU upgrade, 35" pitch props and another 1/8" of propshaft height are what got me these last few mph over the best it ran last year with the 34s. The motors were only spinning 6,300 @ 120, so I bet Dave could work a little magic on the props to get me a little more rpm/speed, but I'm not touching anything. On the way back home I put the tachs at 5,000rpm and it gave me a solid 90mph cruise! Mid range acceleration still felt really good, so I'm leaving everything just the way it is..... until somebody with a pair of Optis on a 28 goes faster!
