OK - first run at full throttle today. Yeeeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaaaa......
Again a very wet and windy day but this time the wind direction was slightly round to the west giving one sheltered stretch of water - still a bit choppy but not enough to make the boat jump.
After a trip to Falmouth and back I was finally on the right side of the initial 3 hour break in period
I was now able to see what she can do at WOT (but only for 5 mins at a time for another 7 hours more).
Anyway - needless to say she flies - trim out to just over half way up on the trim gauge before ventilation sets in and at this position she is very light but felt extremely stable (I would love to see some pictures from outside my boat to see what she looks like at this speed - come on you southwest ribsters - I need some photographers)
Max speed after three full throttle runs was 39.8 knots at approx 6000 rpm with approx 130 litres of fuel on board and 180 kgs of passengers.
I reckon ill get about 42 on a flat calm day with 100kg less fuel on board.
