One another thing I forgot in the Opium 39 review was that the engine size and poor performance under engine is not an issue since it seems to have been due to a too small prop. On my boat we put a bigger flex-o-fold on the standard 30 hp Yanmar and performance is great. 6,7 knots at 2500 rews and feeling like a planing motor boat at top speed 8 knots.

Regards,
Anders
