i was breaking in the motor so it was pretty rich but still at least 45 or so..with the weight of the boat i think it will be better with the 12 and some extra rpm..i will say you wont need much of a cooling head, i had 4 fins on mine and never got hot enough 120F is about it..they are very good engines though, lots of power.

I finally get to see it! That sure was a fast build.
Now you're finding out how much fun these little boats can be! My big ones haven't seen daylight in a long time.

for you guys with riggers, how deep does your turn fin go from the bottom of the sponson ? mine seems kinda short , its only about 3/8 below sponson and it doesnt seems to turn like it should..thanks MT

I would say 3/8ths of an inch is too short...

I am using a MV turn fin on my .12 rigger. Not saying it is optimal, but mine is about 1.5 inches into the water.

On my .12 rigger off the TE of the sponson my first bend is at a 1/4" and overall the turn fin is 1 1/8" deep. I also am using a grim racer turn fin cut down alot ( I think 1/2" off the top and 1/2" off the TE). Hope this helps.

From looking at your picture above, it does look like it's too shallow. Did you do that or did Randy Naylor set it up that way?

Ran the rigger with the 12 tonight..had some trouble until i took off some prop, went to an x435 and it took off, running rich for the first few tanks but i think its gonna scream once broke in..i did flip it once too, it gets jitterbugging from sponson to sponson sometimes which i need to work out..do you think the longer turn fin would help this problem ?

Is it possible to post more pics of this rigger, I would like to see a side view sorta like the view I posted of mine. I get no bouncing of sponsons, and for me to flip I need to be in pretty rough water (rougher than B hydro heat water for sure).


Thanks,

Paul

mtruex, Sounds like your having better luck than my son and I. But we are making headway. I just ordered one of those X435 props. It is a bit smaller than my GR 36X55 prop. So I think it will be the ticket for braking in are motor. I am going to have a great collection of props by the time we ring this thing out.

Hi Mtruex,

I will say looking at your front sponsons it does look like you have a high AOA. I don't know this boat so this could be the way it is setup to run. If you look at mine and notice the angle of the riding surface of the front sponsons in relationship to the bottom of the hull, I would be willing to bet mine is 4 degrees or less, yours looks like it could be 10 degrees if not more. If you have to run at that angle make sure both bottom are at the same amount of angle, if one is more than the other then that might explain the hoping side to side. It also could be the high AOA that you have to start with also, is there anyway you can adjust that down.

Ya i know what you mean..i thought that looked like a lot of angle also from looking at other riggers out there..maybe i could build another set and put them on there more like others are using..
