Thanks Jeff,
With my wife sitting on the heavy cooler and less than 3/4 throttle we clocked 17.3 mph by gps. The motor is not fully broken in yet.
Didn't look at the speed with just me on board. Feels faster.

She is very stable for such a small boat but 3/4 throttle feels plenty fast for an old guy.

Nathan, really good results!!! And yes, I think 18 MPH is fast enough for the both of you!! Again, really nice build!! Jeff

Very nice :!:
I am sure 18 feels like you are flying with that boat. Nice to know they feel stable.

Thanks everybody.
Yes almost 18mph does feel fast. I bet a 5 or 6hp would be plenty for this boat but it's nice knowing I have more if needed.
