Hey Guys as some of you are aware i bought public enemy earlier this year, this week i cut the floor out as it needs replacing at the same time it'll get a new transom. i just have a question regarding transom height, im sure timmy said from bottom of boat to top of transom needs to be 550, however there was a piece "added on" (which i broke off) on top of the original transom to make it 550, so just wanted to make sure this was right?

i'll be using a 12inch mid..

heres some pics.. the second one was just after removing stickers, its all rubbed back now!

:beer

Looks good Rob, we just drilled the transom on the new Straightpoint 1750 yesterday to fit the 12". Transom height was 510mm and we went up another 12mm as we want to be able run the quickfoot as well as the cle + inline box,s and this allowed for the thickness of the adaptor plate.
Which model bullet is that one?? 1600/1650/1700 or 1750.

Hey Kim, thanks for the reply, im going to dummy assemble the mid so i can measure it exactly.
this one is the same as the meadeator however its a lightweight. ( i was shocked dave was sitting on his deck at mildura then realised the difference)
this one measures 4.9m's 16ft..
i believe Phil said they are the same as bullet one :what

Cheers
Rob

Phil could be right, not sure. there seems to be many Bullet Ones around. Steve Gilligan has one which he has fitted a short trunk V4 omc.
How about a few photos Steve????

Ahhhhhhhhh the bullet one saga.

Heres what i have been told by someone you use to drive the "bullet one"
Three originals where ever made 2x 1600's one in the pic the other is gilligans
1x 1700 which was destroyed.
The only difference between the original "bullet one" and a normal bullet was the set up.
Their where 3x drivers
Dave toyer, Ken Evans and Craig Bailey.

Yep, from what i can gather mine was the first bullet one, hence being nicked named 'the real bullet one'. Neil Hancock flipped it (1980?)when attempting the speed recored, so the 1750 was then built driven by Craig Bailey. Then mine was been driven by David Toyer, Brian Fleming, and Peter Frasier. There was no length rule back then, so it had a 2.4 & mk6. The last time that it was run was in 175hp class driven by Stewie Dickson, again, no length rule in ski racing! Ive since made mods to the transom to take the V4, so not sure on the original transom measurements. I believe the last of the bullet one's, driven by Ken Evans (120.93mph) is in the NSW maritime museum. Not sure on that part though? Maybe some one up there can confirm?
