What sort of speed do you get with the Honda and how do you find it?

I can't remember.
We had a 14.5P on there, which gave 32knts (Bradders, you clocked it) from memory. After trashing the 14.5, we now have a 15P with a totally different blade shape/cup profile. We're now getting 30knts. It has a nice pokey pull-out for w/boarding.

You've reminded me of pre-season jobs that need doing.
Additional rollers and bunk added to trailer. (Cheers Jimbo)
Trim pump seals. (creeps down underway)
Fit auto bilge pump. (I've booked a swinging mooring on the Helford for her this season)
Modify cover (see above)

That'll do it.

Nah, it's a great combo. Quiet, gutsy and economical.

29.5kt, after you got down on the tank.

I reckon if you'd zipped up your jacket, you may have seen the magic Three-Zero

With JV in there, she's doing about the same with the latest prop.

Not that I am one to sling the mud , but one boaty notable, an occassional poster on here, admitted to me that he had done the same thing
