Boaters are nice people.
Hi Marcos,

That's very respectable for a plastic hull, when going this fast, the flex in the bottom is going to have an effect on the running attitude.

The flip is driver error, running over your own wake when accelerating is asking for trouble.

Regards, Jan.

Hi Jan,

This boat is one of my favorites, because it is self righting, achieving speeds of over 90 Km joins the pleasure of speed is the ease of self righting. Here in Brazil begins in 30 days the winter season (cold) in this time is complicated boats without self righting.
I also need to take more care with you said with my own waves...
Thank you as always for the always accurate suggestions.

Hi NEDan,

I'm happy for you!
Please, look at other posts, when I bought this boat I was not happy. It has a manufacturing defect (enters water in the flood chamber) you will need to seal. It also requires motor ugrade and ESC for speeds above 50 MPH.

Other thing, the flexible shaft is made for propellers 5 mm, not 4.75. I looked for a turner (who works with the lathe, I do not know how to write in English) and asked him to change to 4.75mm just the end of the cable. This took 5 minutes (he charged me US$ 5 for the service).

Thanks MarcosAC, I'm excited. I've been following this boat all over the web so I have read many of your informative posts.
Not all Angry Sharks manufactured has this defect so I'm hoping mine is one of the few defect-less ones made. We'll see.
Fingers crossed, it will come in a couple of days.
