Mark, you are getting good speeds out of that boat! it would be fun to have a standing start with you though!!! I think it would be 'see you at studland!!!'
No, you'd probably catch me with that kind of top speed, but then you might have to slow down if it was rough, where as i would speed up! good old ribtecs!
we'll see about that johnny, once in gear our boat has a tendancy of getting stuck at 6000rpm, must be a faulty cable or something
In reality, we rarely hit 42 knots, this is only really possible 1 up on a calm day. late thirties is more accurate once theres a few people on board and a bit of chop.
