Going up in pitch from that just slows it down.
I went out yesterday (found a sheltered bay) with a 19" standard ally, 60 ltrs of fuel, case of Corona, some limes and 2 up. Engine achieved 5000 rpm WOT and 34 knts by GPS. I guess thats about standard then taking into account yours and Doggiepaddles kindly supplied info.
Ive been reading this forum for some time now. Judging by the huge amount of Searider owners and the rave reviews they get - is it not worth having a dedicated forum section for them? That way the list of usual newbie questions such as mine could be addressed by looking in that section? Just a thought from an outsiders prospective.
