Nice pic, looks like a perfect day out. What size motor are you running?

It was a nice day out, did over 100km in distance today exploring some islands, used about 50litres of fuel.
Motor is a 4 cylinder 40hp, it's great with three or four people on board, any more than that and it struggles a little...

Looks like a fun day out! Very calm water, must have been great. How fast can it go with only you onboard?

Ive never actually measured top speed in flat conditions, but in the normal 1 foot high chop I can get along at just about 55 kph, so almost 30 knots!
Mostly I seem to cruise at about 39kph which is about 21 Knots, This speed seems about the most fuel efficiant, without going too slow...
