What was the boat they used? Weight, how much gear/ passengers?

@WOT I was only getting 7kts with my Honda BF10, on 4.5mt 200kg + poly type boat...

I got 22kts with a 30hp

I assume the load was the same across tests, done on a 2.9m Orange Marine tender.

Interesting article, Stigomery thanks for sharing.
From Inboard/outboards through many Outboards I have stuck with Mercury. Though, Yamaha's been catching-up on overall sales and can take a real beating and remain dependable. Also liked their two stroke engines as the oil/fuel mixture was 100-1.

Friends of mine that have or do own a Yamaha, lov'm. Yamaha used to manufacture Mercury engines 3-20 hp. I believe Tohatsu make the lower powered Mercs now.
