Without the Power Lift optimized 98 - 99 km/hr which is 52.9 - 53.5 knots.
Is it worth having the power lift then? Or do you operate in alot of shallow water?

In my case, the hydraulic Atlas Power Lift with a setback of 4" gives an advantage of a few kilometers per hour. But for me that's not the most imported. I'm very happy with a much more stable ride, hardly any to none chine walk, operates in shallow waters and uses less fuel at speeds above 80 km/hr. But I don't use it all the time, just when I need it.
Trim and lift are operated on the steering wheel, with 2 fingers on either side.
The prop is a Tempest Plus 23", labfinished by Mark Croxton USA.

MarkM - I assume it didn't come out of the factory like that? Who did the conversion work? Is that a cabin of storage at the front?

It was build to special order by Scorpion, see the original picture.
Later a hedge was put in.
I myself bought the Scorpion from Trefor Williams via this forum. Made a trip to the Ribex in 2005, put on a new engine, back seats and more alterations.
In the cabin we sleep during our trips, there is lots of room for 2 beds and a little toilet.
