True

The review posted showed 7.5 at 2500 rpm.

Other factors include

prop
bottom
towing
etc..

The last bit of power makes the smallest difference. So 2200 rpm ought to be reasonably close to the 2500 rpm number.

Re: Expected Cruising Speed?

8.4 knots is a bit optimistic at that rpm IMHO .

The waterline is 35' 5" (35.4), so;

Just like the review says.....

Re: Expected Cruising Speed?

All those formulas make assumptions, ie..., clean bottom, perfect prop, dead calm conditions, etc..., most of which never seem to exist. I suspect that 7 would be very optimistic, and 6 would be somewhat more realistic under perfect conditions. Put some crud on the bottom, a couple barnacles on the prop, and 5 is about it.

Just sayin,

Gary
