I always count I am at hull speed when I can bring the bow wave in tight to the hull.

Of course boats will exceed hull speed when surfing down a wave. In addition, I always felt I "hear" hull speed when the noise from the bow wave got quieter and moved behind the boat.

So far, our best speed is 9.5 in a 10 to 12 kt breeze. We need more wind before we will realize her top speed. When we purchased her, we were told that in a few races, in perfect conditions, they had her up to 17kts. OMG! I would love to see that, however, when we brought her home and Skip started tearing her down, we found an OLD kt meter, and subsequently think maybe the meter was not reading right. I am still hopeful one day we will get out of here and see some real wind to sail her on and discover for ourselves just what top speed is.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Me, I'm not a jockey, spent too much time working in the industry while others are playing. That said I'm faster around a track than allot of people that think they are fast. I like fast boats, even as cruising boats, I have tendency to like the faster designs.... I like to be at anchor with food and wine happening while others are still rolling around outside, 3 or 4 knots would be agony

Anyway it was a joke, you feel the need to take the p... so be it hero.
