By how tightly your backside puckers when you launch off waves!
Also, by how quickly fuel is consumed.
Other that that, doesn't really matter. I'm curious how fast my boat will go, but not curious enough to have borrowed a handheld GPS. Mine died 2 years ago and I haven't bothered to get it fixed or replaced yet.
My 5 1/2 year old loves driving the rib across Salem Sound at very nearly WOT.
I'd hazard a guess that's in the vicinity of 30 knots +/- a few. Certainly feels fast enough to me.
