Hi, Thanks for the comments, I have not had the boat long but am very pleased :-) Interested that you got 40+ knots with no fuel, I knew the F115 was good on fuel economy but that is impressive!! :-)

Indeedy, lyme bay with 1 bar flashing is not always the best place to be! Dartmouth is stunning though, one of my fav places, just a shame it is quite a long way from Hayling Island!

Both two way and both on GPS
I get 47kts WOT at 5500rpm on a Ribtec 645 with a Mercury 200 running a 21" Laser II prop. 100-150 litres fuel, 2 up, trimmed out, flat calm. What prop size are you using as this seems very fast to me. Does anyone use a 23" prop on a 6.5 with 200HP?
