I followed your thread when you were building, I thought your boat was built like a tank to begin with!
Nice build Bernd.

Thanks @ all !

About speed I actually can't say how fast it is because of break in time. I'm not allowed to give more than 3000 rpm in the first 2 hours.

On Saturday I drove 2,5h. I will inform you then the break in time is over.
(A little movie could be made :wink: )


Bye
Bernd

Really fine rebuild. Bet she fly's like the wind with the 25. You'll like how quite she is and the maitenance is much less. John
