Look forward to seeing your figures on a calm day as if what you say 4500rpm ... 14knots with a 225 on an 8m them you have a problem, regardless of sea. I can only guess that she was peaking at 4500rpm and may be a bit of slip in a heavy sea. Prop change maybe or check engine fitting.
ps. still waiting for that case !
Will pop down soon - case is ready - not my fault you live in the back of the back of beyond.....
4500rpm on a good day normally gives me about 31kts. Waves really were stupid. Great fun though. The Lougher Estuary is a wild place!!!
Only just got instruments working together so when we get some calm weather will do various trials. Also transom jack is mounted way too low - need to lift it up 2 holes.
