    River run

    Here's a pic of our boy mrbtd at speed yesterday.
    Had fun on the IL river, and I had a chance to spank an rxp. Of course my ski has a few mods to keep up.
    The owner of the rxp had a million questions about skis at the launch later, we sent him to Greenhulk so he can go faster!

    With mrbtd's help I did find that I am running with half the plate angle I should be. As well, the one side of ride plate was hanging below pump shoe causing speed loss and high speed pull to one side. Plug chop revealed what I suspected that I was way rich. Mrbtd's comment was that my plugs look almost fouled.
    So, it is as I thought lots of speed left in it, if I can learn to tune things properly.

    Mrbtd's boat is clean and well setup. It pulls hard on the bottom and runs hard to 70. I think he is convinced on going BB ported after riding my ski. With his attention to detail I think we will have another 80mph single piper boat on the board next spring.

    dhoad,

    I've got a yellow etrex and I've never seen a summary page like that one. I'm running V 2.14 of the software and Garmin says it's the most recent version. How do you get to that summary?
