NCP - 29mph = (approx) 25 knots

Skinny - How heavy is your hull etc? Is it a Deep V? (Not a hull I'm acquainted with) Yopu are getting approx 2 knots more than I got out a lardy waterlogged SR4 with a 30, so you might get a bit more out of her, but your speed is in the right ballpark. Any idea of your WOT revs?

Probably a weight distribution /trim problem.
