Re: Ian's new boat

Right Steve the "post" man.

Mark joins and just gets on with the job.

You get a honkin' great jobby of a boat

and automatically assume I'm now you're butler.

Basically Ian has had some water in his camera,

you'll see why and OK Ive had some trouble with my computer

but I have managed to salvage a few pics. YOU WILL NEED TO REMEMBER THE TITLES before viewing.

1 port engine being surveyed

2 starboard engine being surveyed

3 crash test CE certification. I'm not sure if this was a successful test.

4 CE Bouyancy test, again not sure if surveyor considered it

successful but def. will take a while to dry out.

5 Lab prepped Props.

6 Some other boat

7 Some other boat

8 Some other boat

9 Some other boat

10 Some other boat

Re: Ian's new boat

Hay those are cracking engines. The iron filings around the open cam shafts are a sure sign that they have been run-in according to industry standards.
The CE rated sink test looks like they scored a NCAP rating of 5*snorkles.

That aside what a great boat Ian you must be well chuffed.
So when does the first box of Hunton merchandising arrive. This must warrant a new T-shirt (make it less tight fitting than the grey one) and a new cap. Well its what I would do??

Glass ceilings.

Yes I'd have to do that.

But can you just leap out of your HUNTON at the royal motor yacht club in a baseball cap, shorts and T.

Does he not need to reconsider his styling now.

Re: Ian's new boat

Who am I to comment?
Big baggy Rugby shirts is what I tend to go for these days.

Re: Ian's new boat

I have as you can see from the photo's Steve posted taken the bimini covers off, hoping that will help reduce drag,
Next season the antifoul will be coming off and the gel coat will be polished up.

I've lost a few Kilo's since the photo Robbie mentions that will help.

Did not get out this weekend as was away in Devon

Every day the sea was flat calm and warm would have been ideal to try boat out.
boat is currently being stored at SaxonWharf as there is no drystack at LH.

When i ran back from Lymington to Saxon I was not pushing it and comfortably had 42 knots with covers up.
The advertised top speed said 48 knots

Fuel wise it came with 3/4 of a tank so again have not topped up yet to see what consumption is like,
Hoping for a run to Poole this coming weekend "IF" weather is ok will see then

Re: Ian's new boat

its a 36 foot long boat about 11 meters long, dry weight is around 4000kgs, its running twin KAD44's which are 260hp each,

The brand new Huntons run on Volvo D6's 375 HP each and have top speed of 60knots +

Will be pleased when i see the 48 knots when hull is polished and may be some work on the props I may see 50knots which would be very pleasing.

Yes I am very pleased with the boat, its been a 3 year haul to get this far with a lot of peaks and troughs along the way,

Re: Ian's new boat

That is very good for size and weight. Dont forget you could allways "tweak" the engines a little adjustment on fuel and turbo would properly bring them up to approx 300 and still reliable, worth a thought. I have with my yanmar and it runs a lot smoother and pulls so much better.

Re: Ian's new boat

Will have to see, I am the first to admit not mechanically minded, Will speak to Adrian.

I know someone whom tweaked his D6's from the 370HP up to 420HP each, but it comes at a price regards cooling etc.

How many times are you able to go flat out after all. 40knots is both reliable and efficient plus comforatable.

I spoke to the guys on the "Goldfish" boat at Southampton and they have tweeked a 315 yanmah up to 400, but needs looking after every 100 hours
