35-36, In my DeLuxe with back to back seats, two largish men (90kg) and approx. 30L of fuel in the nose and 10L in the back.

Im sure the 3 cyl 60HP merc Clamshell in hole 4 on the back helped a bit, but it WILL start to wobble, And it will NOT go away unless you ease off the throttle, and fast too (Dont ask, but until recently i had not seen a grown man wet himself in fear :-)

The Clamshell is a surprisingly light lump - 83(ish) KG. The 55 shares its leg / gearbox etc with stuff like the 75, so is remarkably lardy, even if it is a bit more torquey.

No surprise there - my old SR4 with a Suz DT25 on the back ran happily with a 12"....... (21 Knots flat out 1 up + 30-ish L of fuel.)
