Nice roostertail What about speed and handling compared to outboardversions?

Seems like it has less lift than with outboard?

We have pretty good lift but would like a little bit more, so new props are on its way.
Doing 60 knots now and missing a couple, handling is much better than expected, we were suppose to fit a jet thruster in the bow but after first tests we skip it.
You get used in the harbours pretty fast boat is doing 7,5 knots when you put the gear in.
In high speeds its very easy to drive, you can really feel that its the props that is pushing the boat forward.
