Thread: Club 80

  1. #1

    Club 80

    This week, had to reset pump shoe.. Someone had machined it and sunk it way up in the hull .110, shimmed it back out to .055, It already had a J-plate, so all Jim did was update it, set it at a cool .985 Had it locked down with .110 shims on trim tabs. 800 grate. Impeller pitch is unknown at this point, havent had time to check it, was told its a 15-25.5, 85 nozzle. RAD at noon today here in Tampa was 1753 feet.. Went 80.0 at 7270 rpms in salt, no buck, no bounce, and no sonic boom..... YET....
