B.O.A.T.

Brake
Out
Another
Thousand.
Had the "improved" waterbug out for more testing.
WAY better than the last disappointing test, BUT.
Not there yet. I beginning to think It will NEVER be "there".
Boat to heavy, too small, and not enough HP.
We planned to use it anyway today as it is, It would handle OK but only around 12 mph at full rpm of 4300.
We planned to run the shoreline slow and shoot carp.
It would have worked too but we broke a drive chain.
Had to "pole" back and load up and go, Dang it.
I have it under the boat port at home rethinking the whole project...

It doesn't seem to be getting much bite on the air? The RPM's seem good. Is the blade designed to be on an air boat?
