yes Ian thats correct, with 150ltrs, and four adults, with a frame and aux 6hp
42 knots, going 44 running lighter. I do remember your thread about which engine to go for, as said my last rib was a shakespear 6.2 with a 140 suzuki
and only managed 37 knotts whatever i did.And the shakespear was a lighter boat. So you may not be that far away from your top end. you could try lifting the engine up a hole, or join the optimax brigade
