Haven't even thought about antifoul. I presume it must knock a knot or two off? Due to friction?

Yep but as someone else pointed out still quicker than a "dirty bottom".

91.57 actually!

That was recorded on Coniston Water as an average of 2 runs over the measured Kilometre, and the one way was measured officially at over 92, and I briefly saw 93 on the GPS on one of the runs! It was very well set up, and despite a slight wobble in the low eighties not hard work to keep it all going in the same direction - don't forget I have been racing this hull for quite some time, and I was regularly seeing mid eighties offshore, so a faster prop and some flattish water was all I needed to see some better speeds.

ps the video is still on our website if you want to see what it looks like at that speed!
