Ceasar Thunderbolt, 5.1, 2up Running a ETEC 90 with race worked prop, going of a handheld GPS and running along side another RIB gave the reading of 57.2mph but it is a cat, so having a wind tunnel does help.

I recon I have had it slightly quicker aswell on a patch of inland water with one up, but with out a GPS I cant state by how much

With no fuel and 1 up, witha 21 stainless on the 115, you can get 45knots out of her with a small following sea state, with the engine jacked up on sea trails and prop testing I have had 46 knots according to the Yamaha gauges.

Good little boat...
