My 2nd post. You guys rock! Thanks for all the help on my first post. Some forums suck know one replys to my posts. If anyone else has anything to add about my float pods please fire away with any thoughts. I did not start building them yet.
I added a tunnel to my 1975 16' hewes craft river runner with a 1998 Suzuki 140 2-stroke EFI. Today was my first test run. Here is a link to 3 videos I shot. It does not cavitate at all going straight even in mild chop or on a reasonable turn. Hard turns it cavitates pretty good. I am going to put a pic of the tunnel on here to so you guys can see it. I am thinking of cutting some of the sides at an angle to get better perfomance in hard turns. Look at all this and let me know your thoughts. I have never had a jet sled with a tunnel and do not know where the happy medium is between no cavitation going straight and know cavitation on hard turns. From what I have read really hard turns at speed are out of the question. I will post the video from shore of how the boat performs latter tonight or tomarrow. The quality sucks but it is still verry cool. Please post pointer and thought if I should modify it and how. Thanks Rusty
