Thanks for the nice comments on my project !
The boat is running great but a little slow compared to last year. I changed the drives from 1 - 1.5 to 1 - 1.62 and put on bigger props. That move cost me 6 MPH on the top speed.

No more leaded here they use some kind of additive but it works. We have 92,95 and 98 octane it is the same octane as you have the just use different numbers for the octane. Price is 4,50 $ pr. gallon !

Have no clue about the boating environment in Denmark (other then ya got a lot of water), do you have a lot of other performance boats around??
Troutly,

It is a sad story. We have a lot of water but most of the boats are sail boats. Very few performance boats and they are spread out over the whole contry.

Real nice job. The engines are beautiful. $ 4.50 per gallon for gas, AAAAHHHHHHH. I ***** like hell when it goes up a dime to $ 1.77 per gallon. I can't imagine having to spend that for gas. No wonder so many people have totally cracked under the pressure and gone to "blowbotes". A fate worse than death.
