We ran this boat yesterday and tried 2 props, and both ended up being too big. Ran 68 MPH GPS. We've got another 400-500 RPM in the motor, so stepping down the diameter on the next test. 350 Verado hanging on a 10" setback hydraulic jack plate. Plenty of tweaking left to find the sweet spot, but...

If you have duplicates, I'll buy them. Thanks in advance. :thumbsup
I'll do my best. I'm pretty much a one man band on this deal, so time is scarce. Still building custom minis as well and I think I'm busier now that i'm "retired".
This one just went to Michigan 2 weeks ago.
Thanks George. Watching my youngest, who is now almost 19, go from racing go karts to being glued to the XBOX was one of my biggest motivators. While I'm not a fan of forcing kids to pursue any specific activity, having options certainly helps. Good, clean family-oriented fun.
So, I didn't have a subscription to the thread and missed all of the various inquiries. Here's a nutshell version of where things are with the Junior Drag Boats.
The boats debuted at the John Haas Memorial in Wheatland, MO. A total of 5 kids signed up and ran the boats throughout the weekend...

I see you're running NHRA Jr. Dragsters - this is going to be very similar when it comes to rules. 660' index, but we will also be...
This is for kids age 10-16. The exhibition boats will be running 30HP outboards and we expect speeds around 40 MPH. The draft rules have three different divisions, based on age and index. 55MPH will be about the max on these, running 660'.
Hydros will be available for the 2016 season.
RA = no coverage limits
RE & R1 = 50% coverage
R2 - R5 = 60% coverage
Note (7) is specific to R5 lots.

I believe the code specifies a maximum of 60% coverage on your lot. Coverage is defined as buildings, parking areas, driveways and maneuvering areas. Scroll to the bottom of the linked page, note (7).
We built a garage twice the size of the house. 1200 sq ft house and 2400 sq ft garage...
