    Thanks guys. It is not quite so perfect when you get real close, but it is going racing so it will almost certainly get it's share of scrapes and dings. That's why I keep it simple! Can't wait to get it on the water.

    So the boat got on the water Saturday. Running a P240, same as the old boat, but on 12s, speed was 75 kph max. Unfortunately current draw is too high at around 70A. On 10s the current draw dropped to around 56 A with a max speed of 64 kph. Temps are a little higher than I like. Unfortunately I do not think the Leopard motor is the one for this job. Definiitely a lower kv and bigger prop will be best as on 12 s with a P235 speed dropped to high 60 kph but current draw increased as well. A new learning curve.
    I will be looking at getting the TP 4070 440 kv 10y motor. There are, as would be expected, a few other tweaks to do on the boat as well. Other than that, the boat ran well.
