Down river trip yesterday, river stage is dropping so wasn't worried about speed records, I sat back and enjoyed the ride.  \./8

Everything worked well, it doesn't look like keeping the starting RPM for the duration of the trip is going to be possible though. Motor was designed to run past 5000 rpm and making it labor down at the 4400 range builds heat and a 200 rpm loss is going to happen. Without the cold air intake it was 300 rpm. Speed is still up compared to the Subaru so still very impressive, fuel consumption hasn't appeared to be any different. Still hoping I can find a way to increase the charging ability, pretty anemic so far, will keep the battery charged but not sure what else it could keep up with. Might do some more testing today to see how it does with some things plugged in.

You should try magnet fishing around those bridges. Figure yourself driving over the bridge and tossing a gun or something out the window. How far would it go away from the bridge?

Tom, do you think it would help to take pull start off to help cooling?  Might be fun to test.

It's quite possible it could. I like to leave those on for customers since it does provide an important backup option. Since this is going to a customer I really don't want to take that out of the equation. On my personal boats I run without, it does cool better on the Subies.

LOL That's not a bad idea, I need to get some magnets and see what comes up! Would be a good thing to try when the water drops low at the end of summer. On my list of things to try now.  \./8
