Sounds good to me I think we should keep a close eye on the forecast and go for a nice cold, still but sunny winter morning

How fast do those things that we are not allowed to talk about go?

A touch over 18kts (21mph ) for mine. I'm going to raise the transom a touch this spring and try it again - there's too much leg in the water. Might reduce the spray a bit too.

Cheers Willk, that's good to know. Maybe I am over egging my guestimate of 20mph if thats what you are getting and as I'm running on a long shaft.

In the process of building a transom extender too. Any excuse not to do the Xmas shopping

Oh yeah sorry, what i meant was I got 20mph out of my 2.9 m with 4 up and running on one spark plug, so 35knts should be possible with just me.

Is that better
