    It's first outing went well but was cut short by the fact it has not been out in over a year. So the front needs to swell back up before I can sustain more than 4 mph. Otherwise it takes on water while under way. Otherwise things went well.

    I am afraid it's party cruise will wait until the exterior work is finished. She took a beating this last winter out of the water and uncovered and she needs work. But it's just paint and varnish so once the weather cools a bit things should start to move again.

    Started the new kitchen remodel and and slowly redoing the decks. By spring the decks should be done as will the new kitchen and main cabin remodel.

    You ou never know it may be ready for some fun in the sun come next season.

    Oh ya, it cruises at 17-20 knots at 3000-3300 rpm. No wot numbers yet. I am afraid to do it. At 6knots it gets 2.0-2.5 mpg. That bad ass. Gives me a 600 mile range in fair weather.

    What speed/RPM does it need to get properly on plane?

    Depending greatly on weight and balance between 2800-3000rpm is where she gets fully on step. At 16-17 knots.
    The original top speed was 22-24 knots at 4200rpm. The new engines top out at 4700 rpm at 27+ knots(31mph)
    my 50 footer can out run my dingy by 10 mpg haha.
