They reckon it's off a torpedo - bet it cost the MOD a fortune - they could have used a fan off a rover V8 instead!!!

Interesting post & I have to agree with Alan about the suck it & see approach.

Scooby had a 19" prop on the Honda BF225, which was fine. We have tried a 24" on the Etec & she performed well but was over reving. Currently she has a 26" which maxed out yesterday at 46 knts in Poole Harbour with a little more to come. However, we still experience some ventilation at low speeds in confused seas - more experimenting to be done I feel.

Just goes to show how different engines (perhaps torque characteristics of 4 compared to 2 stroke?) behave on the same hull.

Cheers

Ian

Max Speed

We went for a quick whizz today. We hit 40 knts a couple of times.

Just wondering what you think our likely maximum speed might be?

Edit: sorry, I didn't mean to post this here!
