Nope, may not catch your rib eye, though our 2.5L V6 2stroke opti might give your 4 smoke a good run for your money! We had 52mph once.
However the Humber OP is a fair match for most other hulls of the same size in rough weather, especially with the oversized tubes we have. See you in the falls!!!!!
Lol

Is. A race on ?
Old Skool 2 smoke v 4 stroke heavy lump

Would put my smoker up against most any time, it's all about the hull tho. In my eyes

But us smokers have horrendous fuel and oil bills to contend with,,,
