Relaunching after the midseason wash and brush we were reasonably light - probably 200L of fuel and two up, no klatch. Tide and wind were running together with a light chop so we got an average of two passes (up/down)coming in at 41.5Kts. Her fastest time previously was 42kts and there may have been a hint of downhill in that. The revs were 100rpm over recommended max so the big 28" Bravos are still about right for a full boat.
I'll sign off on this subject for this season - maybe return to it in a year or so to update the info on the antifouling properties. I should mention that I haven't burnished the coppercoat yet - without any apparent ill effect. A trick to keep up my sleeve for again I suppose...
