speedwise, too busy looking where she going to watch the plotter, but just over 50knots (58mph) on the gps, full 160lts fuel, 4 up, and only at a tad over 5,000 revs,on the large four blade revolution prop ,so a few left to find maybe with the smaller 3 blade, will hit the revs ok, believe she was sea trailed at 69mph !!

Yeeeeeeeeeeeees Jeremy paxman stylie well mine was a snip at almost a third of that. Should say the prop is a Merc stainless Tempest II 21 " .. nice gear. Because of the Verado height you get a bit of slip to start with but when up , the thrust is relentless, even at 4k rpm , hit the gas and your off again woof !!

There may be a drawback to that though - the life expectancy of the highly tuned 444 engine was only 2 hours running time which could prove a tad expensive on a long term basis
