yes, a lemming theft, then given to solent (with a minor alteration to the spray rail tips as a 'smoke screen')

What a tangled web.................

No it doesn't hurt if you keep a hand on the trim and trim down for the rougher bits. This is with a clean bottom - polished myself (no, the boat, you idjut!) and the engine nice and warm. Temperature about 68c, sunny.

Kev from Solent got it up to 49.1 a while back with the two of us on board with a about a 3 knot current going with us according to the electronic chart - so that is 46k.

I like the noise!!
What rpm are you pulling at 46kt SOW?

Actually I don't know. I am an old blind bastard and find the smart craft guages a bugger to read. I will check. I have the GPS speed fed to a secondary small screen on the console in front of the navigators seat, above the big plotter.

I will check and report back

SOW?

Yes, you really should, if you have anything of a conscience.

No just go to the Church...... and stand a round for the Solent Ribnet members, this should resolve you of any blame. Good hull though

I too am an old blind bastard and find the smart craft guages a pain. Am considering a chart plotter with smart craft ability (Navman) and I'd be interested in the setup you have. I see that Mercury do a SC5000 system 1000 I find the standard guages are just readable on the pontoon let alone on the water (there position isn't ideal to be fair)

Any picture or info would be really useful.
