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.

Yes but how fast COULD you possibly get there?

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.
