Thanks for the link on the second video. That is cool stuff. I love the look of the Evinrude high performance mid section.

I am shocked at the trim that they run on that thing.

You have to run any outboard hydro tucked under to lift the stern. A "three point" hydro runs on the two sponsons and the prop, until it becomes basically airborne. You must keep it running either level or slightly bow down at all times.

Thanks I guess I kind of knew that but did not realize just how much it was. You would think that it would be driving the bow down so much it would cause all kinds of friction/drag up in the bow. I guess it is the same as the Unlimited Hydro's but they have the adjustable wings to lift them.....

Remember that unlimiteds have a negative shaft angle and tremendous downforce forward.....

I don't think so. I believe that this is the company that Gary sold to Reggie, only to have Reggie discover that there were little or no assets.

But I could be wrong.
