You know, WOT, one of the two positions on a RNLI throttle:

1. NOT
2. WOT

Hi Chewy,

That is WOT - the prop setup is keeping revs down to just over 4500, book says WOT should max out at 5500. Going to have a play with new props etc in feb. Just finished running in so haven't bothered so far..

Glad someone knew what I was on about, should get a few more knots with it revving to 5500rpm.
