Video of Shibby's RXP 1st "water test"
first time my RXP has touched the water.... wanted to check for leaks, fluids, proper running, etc... i went from having an empty hull to fully modded machine with almost everything short of an EMS kit... so i'm hesitant to go test and ride it by myself since water temps are nearly 40 degrees and NO ONE is out there to help if i needed it and so many parts went into it all at once...
so here's a video of how it sounds and of the ski running in the water tied to the dock... i let it float for like 20 minutes checking for leaks, then let it run for about 20 minutes checking for anything else out of the norm...
have one minor thing to fix 2nite, and i'm planning on taking it for a ride tomorrow

Steve, just wait until you ride it. That IC is gonna BE very nice. It is gonna knock your socks off. I love mine! Looks as if you had a little water leak. Looks very nice.
You have done a great job bro. Congrates.

Did you get any GPS readings? She probably went something like .002 tied up to the dock. I bet you can get more out of her if you treat her right! She's gonna be fast!!!
