I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

Great news! Very pleased to know the twindisk set up is doing its job. After everything is all set up a good prop shop should be able to fine tune the prop for you.
Do I understand correctly that you returned home on the e-drive at 4 knots?

You can clearly see how springy the sheer is when she’s out on her own on the water.

Looks lovely, glad you finally got past the transmission issues. Will be interesting to dump a little pitch and get the engine bouncing off the rev limiter when loaded light with one person. In agreement that prop speed is critical to top end performance with this boat, so those last rpm will be a good thing.

Keep up the good work.

Just wonderful responses thanks OQ, Lee, poleposition, Craig, Jeff, Hank, Jaysen, Nobeach, Ilker, David, Barry and Spokaloo. :D :D :D

Over the coming days, I'll respond more fully to matters you have raised.

In the meantime, to today ....... I'd undertaken to do further rat rod testing, backed by videos.

Instead, early this morning the phone started ringing off the hook from locals, the fors, againts and fence sitters, wrt our Noosa oyster reef restoration, aka bring back the fish, campaign.

Suddenly they were united, at least on a tangent :wink: . They wanted to know how Skinnydip had scooted over the shoal sandbanks, at low tide yesterday afternoon, in full view of some of Noosa’s favourite riverfront watering holes.

Perhaps by coincidence :wink: :lol: , yesterday's rat rod testing had been noticed by enough to get the local bongo drums well and truly beating.

So today (and it looks like tomorrow too), became a de facto community outreach day, where Skinnydip was used as the entrée talking point for our wider oyster reef restoration cum bring back the fish aspirations.

Carpe Diem. :D

Further rat rod testing and video shooting will happen asap.
Completed R13 two part nesting rowboat. ST 21 under construction .... where seeking perfection is recognized as the enemy of the good.

How many times has someone here said “folks will stop to you to talk about a JM boat”? Looks like that truth is paying off in a positive way!

I’ve been on the Noosa River - didn’t see anything like SkinnyDip. :D

Mind you, I don’t think the locals had seen anything like the FBBB before either! :lol:
