I reckon at a guess just over 60MPH, but like you say I have'nt seen it (except the pictures) and I don't want to get into prop conversations but a 6.9 with a 225 opti is going to be 'king quick, especially considering the Solent is a fast hull.

I reckon, on a flat calm day, trimmed right out, you'll get 65mph (56.5knots).

I've been running opti 150's for about three years now and I've always been surprised at how fuel efficient they are, and I do have a lead wrist! Nearly always under the litre per mile on a 6.5 Scorpion If I just cruise at thirty knots then it gets a lot cheaper.

We also Run a 225 on a 7.3 Gemini (thi sis a very heavy boat) and it maxes out at a touch under fifty knots and is sucking up 78 lph. This is on a par with Whiteshooz boat which is a Ribtec 7.5 with a Yammie 225 Fourstroke (Nice engine, by the way) and he pulls about the same at 47 - 50 knots

It is my understanding that you can overrev em as the ecu doesn't limit revs
Pettal are you having any Navman electronics on your boat. cos they do a very lovely interface to the Smart guages ( which are wicked!)

OK, I'll come clean... the 65mph guess was Richard's!

My guess is 73mph.
