I was expecting 130 hores to gallop a little quicker than that !!!
Could it be that it's the boat that's very heavy because the hull stiffening or deck has soaked up a lot of water? (I'm presuming the boat has wooden stringers, deck etc. covered with GRP.)

Apologies Kermow, sloppy post on my part - I was referring to the "mental picture" part. I have a new one - a newer, shinier Mollers...
