Action!

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

I took the boat out again last weekend and we did some more tinkering to get more speed.  The trim tabs did not improve performance, they hindered if anything so I pulled them off the boat.

It was flowing nicely, the copper pipe helped with the heat in the coupler but i’m going to change it for something a little smaller to get more surface area contacting the header pipe.

The level in the pond is getting really low now, too many shallow spots etc.  It’s probably time to either find another spot or possibly shelve it for now.  Might still see maybe one more installment but i think i’ll end up waiting for some more rain to fill the pond rather than going back to the salty river.  Time will tell.
