    got my 05 1300 un locked at last

    got out today for a blast after a list of mods and tweeks to try to unlock my ski from its months of lock down...
    thanks to all that have offered advice and little tips along the way and a special thanks to jims 1300 for ff plate and carl @ island for re pitched new prop..
    got out in a good warm day today in the uk and after months of work and tweeks in garage got these results

    half a tank of fuel, will post temps later as late for night work and there in ski glove box..

    re pitched prop spun at 7190 @ 76.2 mph in 12 inch chop

    no holes filled and no time to tweek e.f.i...

    riva sponsons for full loose affect..will try stock stepped

    loose as hell, will shim tabs and fill holes in morning..

    only managed superman twice due to chop and one hell of a buck every time..

    felt i lost some speed to the buck but had a good few runs in calm ish water when wind died down a little all 75.8+ and three runs all at 76+
    will re pitch again and try for some new numbers as i only lost 90 rpm from 20 to 23..
    thanks again to all, will now work on the buck..
