Default 45cc homelite step hull

Hey guys ! This is my Black widow Boat that I have made some changes to ! I have installed a frank bowman ring, done some port work, changed the bottom of the hull and added a 16x10 3blade prop ! it is turning the prop at 8550 at the moment. I have a larger venture carb to install once I work the bugs out of it.

Here is a short vid of the first run after the changes. I don't have a gps at the moment , but will try to get one soon !!

Thanks ! Yeah, it does ... I just dropped the engine down about 1 1/4 inch to lower the COG , maybe it will help it a little ! im also going to lower the cage by almost 2 1/2 inches to see if the will get it even lower . once I get it to handle a little better, I have some more mods to do to the engine to try and get more speed :-)
