Looks good, and looks like it runs good as well, her length will make for a very nice ride I'm sure. Congratulations, I am happy for you!
Actually the first run didn't really sink in - was in too much of a daze!!! I know it was about 90 miles of open sea but it was so simple as the weather was brilliant. Suprisingly cold though.

First 20min run in home waters was a lot more exciting - seriously dodgy waters.

Thanks for the kind words - as you can tell I really HATE Yanks.....Or so some people claim!!!

tilt your engine up and fit one of those large buckets to 1 hide your prop 2 protect other boats if close 3 protect others from hurting themselves on your prop if sharp

early suz's are not best know for anti corrosion properties, bit like the early suz bikes, they dissappear from underneath you.....plink plink fizzzzzzzz

keep an eye on the anodes as when they go then other major bits of metal take over and you dont want that and how can they be so erroded already if the boat is new?

Feeling bit better today.

Top speed is 41kts - even with 500l of fuel and loads of kit etc. Prop is a 4 blade 19" pitch - brilliant acceleration - should do quite a bit more with a 3 blade 21". I have a 24" prop I had cheap of Ebay - don't know if she will swing it ok but if it's ok I should get a good top speed.

What RPM are you pulling at present? I doubt you will be able to swing the 24 inch and may even struggle with the 21inch. 41kts for a 9m boat with full fuel load and 200 hp is more than acceptable. In fact I think your speedo/gps may have a touch of the 'searays' about it!

41 knts out of a 19"P? I'm amazed. You should be OK with a 21"P. Doubt if you'd even get it planning with a 24"P on there. That's a big lump of boat.
