Thanks for all the advice, not sure I should post what was wrong as will loose all credibility, but made me laugh so here goes .....

I have digital gauges, not a fan as I was so used to the needles on my Mercury, I tend to use the plotter for speed, anyhow before I make any other excuses - I was looking at the wrong gauge, flat out was 42 knots not 4200 RPM, easy mistake to make I hear you all say, I said, EASY.....

In my neck of the woods you need to keep an eye out for lobster pots rather than the console, since Oman I'm extra vigilant, new boat, never had a working speedo before - cant think of any more at the moment.
