the one thing I thought was apart from a dirty bottom was that you might be loosing a little bit of bang (2mph or so) becayse the Petrol has changed its got more ethanol in in.

Maybe it's everything, petrol, rough hull and softer thicker tubes = more drag.

Don't believe a re-tube Will give you your speed back .have you added anything else lately ,8#4 windscreen ,bench seat or half ton toolbox ?

Take it to a scale if You have the option available, the weight might tell you something, helping eliminateing som of the potential issues?

no prop change

If its not the tubes i think it's the hull :(

If low compression, would it sound different. Feels like the engine is pushing, just that the boat feels heavy/dragging.

When you have finished your training and completed that half marathon Paul I'm sure that next time you're out on it it will go a lot quicker ;) :hide: :D
