I thought your profile was a joke. Jesus. When do you want us to call the lifeboat?

Your hull is rated for 30hp. It's going to either flip, sink or fall apart.
Put you telephone number on the hull!!!

Only saving grace is - you're running on flat water. Hit a wave or someone else's wake at the wrong angle, and who knows. The engine certainly looks healthy enough with strong tell-tale.

The transom is reinforced by an expert, so that won't be damaged by the engine. There aren't even stress cracks in it.

Well, you're right about the waves. If you hit a big one with over 55mph you're likely to crash. But why would you do that? I've been out on the waves yesterday, and if you keep the speed low, 20 to 25 mph, there's no problem at all, the boat is designed to do that.

Flying over waves with full speed is just madness.

With a faster prop and another engine on it she runs almost 50 knots with 2 people, gear and 60 liters of petrol.

Very happy with the way the boat handles the speed!

24p Powertech lifter prop... RPM meter isn't very precise (needs tweaking) but something like 5600 or 5700.
