Dogs bollocks of a boat but a bit wet. Will take a lot of HP!!!

I sea trialed one some years ago with a pair of 300's on the back, went like stink!! Good fun seeing as I was not paying for the fuel

Been out on a fisheries Avon, but not sure if it was the 7.4 or 8.2m.

Anyway 2 honda 130s at 3,300 rpm gave about 35 knots.
Supposed to do over 50 knts

big smooth boat in the weather, used offshore and up river, but heavy and thus a bit thirsty.
