Ribcraft 6.8 with standard 225 ETec. With a 21" Raker prop - 45kts, with a 19" Rebel prop - 47kts. There's a big difference in accelaration and ride between the two props. Will cruise at 40kts and consume about 62 litres an hour with the Raker prop. The boat's got Coppercoat antifoul but I don't think it slows the boat down much.

Welcome Keith to RIBnet

Mine goes faster than I am yet confident to try but hopefully I can let you all know later this year after a few more successful trips under our belt

28 hp produces 5.5 knots at cruising speed and 6.99 knots under sail flat out. 12.5 knots through Alderney Race when things were happening really quickly Hoping to get a folding propellor shortly which will add 1/2 a knot under sail, yippie

However we have been down to 2 knots off the back of the IOW fighting the tide trying to get home.

Fuel used about 1.5 litres. No not a mile, but an hour
