thats a great clip, i hope the music police dont take that tune away


right about the 1:40 mark looks like its pretty rough. I learned long ago if it looks rough on film then it was really rough in real life. Looked like she was eat'in pretty good to. Awesome clip. That boat has a great set and attitude.

Best thread I've ever read on OSO. Great information for sure.

Steve, when you are ready to write a book on this give me a ring - I would be happy to help with the editing, etc. but unfortunately I could not contribute to the real content. You should get all that knowlege in your head document for the generations to come.

Yes it gets bumpy around Abu Dhabi sometimes and that is my kind of water now That is the old bottom, the newer stuff has something a little different, like I said the Kuwaitis encouraged me to work on my Ideas and one of my "Mule" Boats I put a flat but open deck with a side console coming in from the gunnel cap there the Hynautic and the control Box was mounted with a couple gauges.

The Idea here when the boat came back up to the plant on Saturday ( Arabian Monday) I would have my mechanics derig and flip the boat on the floor, a couple planks under it then I would be working the bottom ,it eventually had a version of that Impulse bottom from the 40, then Wednesday night it headed back down to the Chalet on the shore for the weekend and I with a GPS would check speed and handling lastly for the dryness of the ride.

The new stuff is quite a bit different.
