Yesterday the maximus was launched & despite thinking it was a little choppy with the incoming tide it was fairly successful.(Updated photo album for pics)
She floated well & didn't take on any water even standing at the back.
The let down was the Merc! although reliable to start it seemed to be running on one cylinder & the throttle cable didn't seem set up right so unfortunately couldn't test her planing.
That's what you get on a launch day!
We had it running in a bin on dry land & connected a hose up the second time. I was told that its natural that the throttle kicks in on the last of the lever movement.
The engines coming off to be checked through & hopefully she'll be back in the water before August for a proper 38mph run!
there was a good attendance & money raised for the hospice which was made it worthwhile.

Looking forward to my next project!
