The book says 13:26!!!! which in my money is 1:2. (I presume it is 13 teeth to 26 teeth)
The speedo impeller is about 14" forward of the transom and suffers from the "squirt effect" when landing. Max speed is recorded as an instantaneous reading, and the current speed is averaged over 20 seconds. In truth I we did not do more than 32kts.
Oh yeah, and the fish we caught was at least thaaaaaaatttt big
JW - I just noticed you were not talking to me. Sorry.
1 point. Are Statute miles the same as US miles? I presume Smart Gauges work in US measurements.
