RE: How fast is your Californian?
I have a 1984 34 LRC with Detroit 8.2's Normally I cruise at 8-9 kts.* When needed I can get 22 to 24 kts at WOT. Not comfortable pushing these older engines hard, but it is there if we need it. When we first got the boat we could hit 25 kts easily, but we have added batteries, cabinets, etc as the boat is set up for criusing. That has cost us a bit of speed. Not important fgor our usage style
