Might get a bit more from heeling (and therefor less drag), but an additional 17%? Not being a smartass, really want to know if that much over hull speed is possible (other than "surfing" down big swells).
Knot meter is set correctly?!?!?!?!? that would be my first guess on this.
The boat picture to me looked like a Bayliner buccaneer. I think they had one that looked like that. That one for a fact did not sail to well, despite the pedigree of Bill Garden the designer.
