first day testing with XLL
Went out today for the first time to get some numbers with Leo very happy with results for being the first time out for speed runs, In the salt water first run 76.6 MPH. Second run 76.8 MPH. conditions were great, temp was very hot and high humidity.
Finally got a good advent, My carbs. will need to be rejetted again for the 3rd. time can't believe the fuel it needs Will play with the handling a little and the impeller to match my power band, And a few more speed items to install that are not on. Once everything is installed and carbs rejetted the ski will be running high 78 to low 79 MPH. in the summer heat and salt water. Once i rejet the carbs. and add a few parts i will post some more video's of some speed runs.
I want to thank Leo for all the help with everything.
Also want to thank Lowell for his great porting.
Here is a couple video's with run number 1 and run number 2. Thank you, Jim

Awesome looks like you got that hull up out of the water. I've often wondered how well a 3 seater with all the tricks done to it would run.

All the other 3 seaters better watch out at MB

Thank you everyone, Was getting water in hull today and once i got home to flush it i saw the bottom of the hull filling up with smoke so i looked and found the big hose that goes to the bottom of stinger was in on top but was not all the way on bottom so it was leaking water and exhaust into the hull. Fixed that already and will be rejetting and doing a couple more things, I will be doing some runs next week and video tape it, My guess will be high 78 to low 79 mph. We will see if I'm correct with the numbers that i predict next week.
