Iceland´s fastest powerboat

Next week I will have my new boat finally out of customs after beeing there for exactly half a year tomorrow, mainly due to the fact the Icelandic Ship Register did not honour their own rule book until two weeks ago....., if the boats manufacturer states on the invoice it is a raceboat the boat shall be exempt from CE bu**sh*t and all other regulations..... so now I can do whatever I want with the boat give the inspectors longest ......

The engine has been in our showroom since last autumn and been a real eyecatcher as beeing the Iceland´s largest outboard engine in both terms of height and horsepower.

We will make triple axle trailer... low profile... galvanised and painted most likely black and yellow..... i.e. up to Jón Baldur to do the paint job.

Original drawings of the two A-frames have been modified and will look a bit different and more futuristic.

Anti shock seats will be arriving next week and most likely I will have my dad to do the upholstery again as only available in white.

The boat must be ready in some 5 weeks in order to have run it in before the first race first weekend of May here in Reykjavík.

Bogi
