Cookee,

that is completely mad . I bet you must come off the water with the kind of wide-eyed, nostrils flared look that says TOO MUCH ADRENILIN.

Please post an update if the EFIs are any faster

5750 rpm is the top rpm on the brand new opti. With the right prop you must do atleast 52 knots

It will be! Finally got it all sorted for last weekend, and had a sensor failure, so it only went 50mph - and believe me that feels positively pedestrian at that speed!

Figured this is as good a time as any to stop lurking and join the debate with a first post.

I have just taken delivery of my new 9m Cobra with 2 Suzi 300s on the back. So far I have 1.5 hours on each engine so it will be a few hours before we can see what she can really achieve. Should be enough to warm the drysuit though!

While she has not been formally named yet, what do members think of "Carbon Footprint"? Am I asking to have my tubes slashed??

Welcome.

Depends on how many tree huggers live near you. I can only achieve a pitiful (??) 36.5 knts with my 90.

Have lots of fun and give me a shout if you do a run to the Scillies.

Most certainly will do. I will be in the Scillies in late August, a little local knowledge would go a long way.

Great idea!!!

Sounds like a nice outfit you have - remember when running in your engines a bit of caution doesn't go amiss - running in for 2x as long as the makers say never hurt anyone and may just make you engines last even longer!!!
