2000 model boat and motor

Ribeye 725s with a Yamaha 150 TRP

40 Knots flat out, I was thinking it would be faster but I'm happy with the boat and the TR props are amazing at getting the boat on the plane from a standing start in 3 seconds.. But this could be the boat design helping.

how fast is your rib?

I don't often run flat out, I hate hearing an engine screaming its max.

I did run it flat out the other day and managed 41knts.

To me top speed means nowt, willy waving rights, I'd far rather ride and comfort than sheer speed.
There is a place on this planet for all of Gods creatures.........right next to my tatties and gravy.

Top speed (via GPS) is 24mph / 20.8 knots, top speed with the missus, 7mph (limited by her comments on ride comfort).

2010 Zodiac Futura Mark IIC Alu (3.7m SIB) with 2013 Honda BF20D (4-stroke) with stock 4-blade prop (9.25" diameter x 10"). This is 1-up with several hundred pounds of crap aboard. That speed is exhilarating and a little scary. Engine is around 5500 RPM (hard to read the digital tach while being bounced around and looking out for larger waves). I'm sure that with a nice 3-blade stainless prop I'd get a few more mph out of it, but this boat isn't made for that kind of speed on the choppy waves of Puget Sound.

Impressive 59 knots.
But the fuel gauge is much quicker than the gps readings

Ive tried a few times to see what mine will do, but the noise from the missus gets too loud so I throttle back

You need to chuck the missus off as it will save weight

On a serious note I reckon your boat should be one of the quickest off the shelf / consumer rib here on ribnet and I would love to know what its top speed is as I must admit I have a bit of a soft spot for hyrdofoils

7.2 ballistic / yam 250 HPDI

We've had 50 knts but the fuel consumption is in excess of 90li/hr (gauge only reads upto 90 LPH). It's got 10% more rpm but my bank balance hasn't got the nerve.

Much prefer 40 knts / 55 LPH, far more civilised pace per pound !!
