Really can't see it doing that. Their jetribs do less than that with 104hp. Still 42kts is fast in a 3.2m boat!!!

I'm inclined to agree with you there! I have a 3.5m, maker unknown with a Mariner Marathon (lightweight) 25hp and I can get about 28 knots with 1 on board on a flat day. 51 knots seems a little ambitious!
