Hello Adam, happy to hear from you!
The acceleration is impressive,from 0 to about 45 knots is almost the same as the 200 Optimax but after that there's a big difference!
I'll pass your regards to everybody!

31knots 24 ltr/hour=0.77ltr/n.mile not bad for 200 horses!
That day with half of the route traveling 18-20 knots due to bad weather it averaged 0.77 ltr/n.mile(it can go as low as 0.7ltr/n.mile)

Quite a radical design for a hand built mould did you have any design inspiration or was it purely a "lets see if this works" process
Is the hull as good / much better than other similar size boats

Indeed it is a radical design especially for a rib this size but it came up after some years of researching and studing of anything that has to do with planning hulls...
The hull is very seaworthy but as a sport and stepped design it excells in speed and fuel consumpion...
