New boat big miles

Picked up new toy last week ,between thursday and tonight we've done 260 NM's. It's doing approx 1 ltr to 1NM which I'm happy with, this during running in.

would recomend both the manufacturer to date and the performance of the engine. 21" momontarily touched 5,800=39kts but this was'nt full throt - I get the feeling the engine would have humped through the 6,000 limit if I had let it.

23" in coming up to try..
