If you have a product like Shoe-Goo over there, it works great for installing the screen. It's a silicone adhesive if you don't know what it is. Over here it's made for shoe repair. Lay down a thin bead then push the mesh right into it.

Hi guys
finished all the fibreglassing now,removed the foam from inside cockpit, cut the screen out and drilled out some big holes in the back of cockpit and in the front of the canopy to allow the air through.
Im gonna modify the strut and bracket so i can get the stuffing in and lined,also make a support for the stuffing.

Oh yeah, I've been looking at it. I'm not planning any new boat builds this winter and to keep myself busy I thought that it would be a good thing to add on.

I don't know if you've bought from Zippkit's or not but your transom hardware looks just like the stuff that he sells. He's got a new quiet tuned pipe that's working really well on my RCMK's, so well that I'm going to get 3 more of them when I get the cash together. I run it at 13-1/2", whatever that is in millimeters.

Yes, that's the one! Joe is currently out of stock but has another shipment coming in soon.
I kind of know Dave Marles at Prestwich as we chat once in a while on AIM.

If you're not happy with it at all for any reason, Joe will refund every cent (or whatever you use over there) that you spent for it and yes, that does include shipping! Most will only refund the price of the part so you're out S&H costs both ways.
Yes, it probably will hang way out there but that was to be expected using a RE engine.

And, the K30 piston and K30 cylinder is really perfect and excellent performance for Rear Exhaust engines.
So, if you use the K30RZ Top End kit in your RZ254Evo, you will be very good pleasure for excellent performance and without any problems.

7.2 HP and 19,000 RPM is very impressive! Figure with that little of an increase in displacement that they're getting around 2 HP more is quite an accomplishment.

I don't know but I've got a couple of big ones that it ought to turn! Mark Sholund of Props 4 U sent me one to try out on the 'rigger but it just didn't have the oomph. With that kit on, I think that it should be able to spin it. For my mono, there's an ABC 7020 waiting in the wings.
