    Riva stage III results

    I picked up my ski from Riva here in Pompano and went straight to the lake Ida.

    Air Temp- 84
    Water Temp- ?
    Conditions- Flat for short periods/Ski boats


    @ 8360 RPM VTS 2 bars above middle with 82mm ring 76.1 MPH

    I could have gotten more maybe but WOT runs were hard to get.

    Ski had only reverse bucket trimmed no other free speed

    I know from the post that the prop could use alittle love to get the RPMs up, fill ride plate holes,4" Riva Rear intake!! Any other free speed tricks?

    Wait, Riva built it and it ran 76 MPH?! This doesn't sound right at all. Was this on GPS?

    If you don't mind giving out details, could you give us more info like:

    Fuel level
    Rider weight
    Rider position
    Water conditions
    How long you held it WOT
    Altitude (are you at sea level?)

    Not only Riva but Bruce and the R&D team.
    Told me it's the exact same as the boat Jerry rode minus the rear intake.
