Got a chance to get some new numbers.

72 Mph at 6100 RPM with the 25 Tempest. With about 25 Gallons of fuel, and most of it in the front tank. I know 75 is there, so that is my goal for the next time out as I burn more fuel. I am still learning the chine walking. I am still really figuring out how to balance on the pad. But today I was able to run 71-72 for a long time till I ran out of room.

Wondering how a different prop will change things. I do feel I would turn a higher number with a nose cone and a chopper or ET style prop. I run out of water pressure now. I have 3 holes plugged, might plug the 4th and retest
