CHEESEE on the move

Last night we went out on two boats, Cheesee and Valiant PT 650 ISN.

Ingi Björn took Cheesee whilst I drove the Valiant, later we swapped boats and I did speed trials on the circuit and the modifications on the boat is improving the performance of the boat substantially.

Cruising 76 MPH, still only doing 5.400 RPM

Re: CHEESEE on the move

Graham, with the modification we did last spring has improved the performance drasticly, as well found we out that one of the databus cable was faulty giving faulse alarm and forcing the engine to safe mode.

So with Laser 23 speed is now 78 miles an hour and will try other props coming season so I am plesed although would like to see extra 5 miles
