biggrin.gif The boat and the rigging you've done, looks fantastic Brandon.

What sort of performance numbers are you hoping to see with the way it's set up? smile.gif

P.S. Have you had a chance to take any more Euro pictures yet?

Thanks for everthing you've shown and shared so far !!

Bruce.

Brandon, I thought that motor allready had the 260 elec on it. You are running 120+ with a stock 280 offshore?

Nope, still has the 280 offshore race electronics... got it to 120 with two people as well... can't wait to get rid of that rev limiter.. all the motor has is some tuner work... prop shaft 1 3/8 above the pad 4" of set back with a 32 clever

Thanks Jeff
