Nops, there is no cavitation at all and the middle engines has UL rigg and the side engines are Xl.
We didnt have the right props on (25 on the sides and 23 in the middle, we had a topspeed of 59 knots and an acceleration of 0-50 knots in seconds.
Boat is 13m and 3,2m wide and has a weight of arond 3,5 tons (dont have the exact weight)
