No prob at all.

It's the 50/60hp rigs that struggle with maintaining cruising speeds.

Remember, it was bot so long ago that 100hp was considered a biggy.

Agreed running to Isles of Scilly in a 5.3 is perfectly feasible. I was considering more Avocet's overall trip possible in a sub 6m boat, but far more comfortable in a longer hull plus the additional fuel capacity / storage the bigger boat affords for more than a day / overnight trip.
