Humber 5.3 Ocean Pro, Tohatsu 90 TLDI, Full tank (55litres), 2 up, Slight chop
GPS 46mph.

A great speed i think, something to do with power to weight. Was hitting the rev limiter though, so with a re prop i think i could get an extra couple mph.

Interestingly, i was faster than an animal 5.6 (i think) with a stepped hull running a 115 etec. Power to weight ratio is the key.......

BananaShark raceboat 73mph in race trim or 76mph in the very flat with a 200XS on the back - now fitted a 280hp 2.5EFI on the back and we'll be at the Poker Run on Saturday and we'll see what it'll do now if it's flat!
