Humber Destroyer - 7.209370385e-8 times the speed of light (through air), 2 persons, DF140 Suzuki trimmed all the way to the top.

I have had 43.4knots (1.4knot faster than the figure above), but that was not real since I was going with the wind and tide, only one person on board, empty fuel tank, and the fish finder had broken off the back creating less drag too
