how fast is your rib?

We need a race! If you/we can get away ;-)

I think we're slightly lighter so getting a few knots more. 47knots/54mph with 120L on board and two up, though perhaps a 1 or 2 mph help with tail wind/tide.

HP - I think* I had a little run with you on the Round Anglesey trip - seemed well matched.

*Were you playing with the big 300' that lost the seat cover round near south stack?

I defiantly now need Biffer to work his magic on the hull - so I can get a few more konts!

Indeed! Certainly matches for some cruising as the hulls will run comfortably at similar speeds.

Not me with the 300, that'd be Deano in Rocknrolla, osprey v'max about 7+m with an etec 225HO on I think.

Well Im sure I cruised along side with you for a little bit around that side of Anglesey - May of even been a little further down before I wanted a run at WOT.

Does anyone use Strava for this sort of thing ?

As for consumption I did record 1.2lts per mile for the RIOW trip - but that included lots of messing about WOT and chasing other RIB's. Not really indicative.

Yep, point Lynas to Holyhead we were together, then you cracked on as I went in. But lumpy with wind over tide.

The Delta is doing with the new yamaha 300 'conservatively' propped 46 knots on the GPS doing 5150 RPM. I am not really man enough to trim engine out to max though(yet) ....
