Arctic 28 - 46 knots is the most I've had but she's propped for economy??

2.7-2.9 litres per nautical mile at 30 knots

Make me an offer

Lol is there such a thing
Twin 115's on a 6.4 RC ain't overpowered by a long chalk, I'd have thought the Arctic would be waay heavier & would be better with at least 2x150 (Etecs)

Good choice, we have 2 x 150 ETECs on our A22, boat is phenomenal. Had to increase transom height though as I wanted icon controls and these aren't available on the right length.

Mine had twin 115s originally, would do about 42 kts flat out. When I re powered I phoned vthalmatic, at the time I could get Etec 150s or 175s for the same money, guy at halmatic commented that he thought 150s would be 'plenty'.

Boat will do 48 kts flat out, they cruise so comfortably at 30-35 kts though.

Not a bad engine as such ed. I guess we had lots of electrical issues and the engines were just simply sluggish compared to the good old suz 140 efi's screaming at the rear.
They soon got the reputation of being optishite. We also replaced all suz 140 for the 115opti's on all mk1 rigid radars which brings tears to any landing craftsman
