How fast does yours go?

Exactly as the title says really... How's about getting a list together of people's top speed, including boat make, model & size, Engine, RPM and Propeller specs. Just out of interest really, and it could help people get more out of their boat (you may see a boat exactly the same running 10 knots faster and wonder how they do it!)

I'd like to start, but I don't know mine yet!

This has been done before but the threads have not been resurected for a while. Try a search as they do make good reading.

I warn you that as soon as people stat posing there will be those who are working out prop slip etc and disputing the claimed speeds.

On a slightly more scientific note Nasher....I know that we've got similar boats and that you've got a bigger engine...BUT i do believe that mine is faster than yours, because mines a RED one!!

Ah, but that's where you'd be wrong, because Mines got a stripe and a rib.net sticker.

Everybody knows that a stripe is good for 5 knots, and the rib.net sticker makes it look faster.

And my dads bigger than yours.
