btw, i cant help wondering if your boat looks a little nose heavy in this shot?

Most trips out we*spend*a few minutes at WOT to blow out the gunk or some such technical stuff that my DH understands and I do not.* That particularly day we hit 13.1.* On another day with two ppl on board we hit 15.1.***

ok, funny story, on the sea trial, the broker and the PO were down below and my DH was driving*above.**The PO told the broker we were going 16 knots.* The broker*asked the PO where he was seeing that speed.* The PO gestured to the VHF, "see, 16 knots".*

EDIT: I JUST realized this is why the PO had told the broker the boat cruised at 16 knots!* LOL.

Jennifer, the speed explains the bow shape.* Probably a sharp forefoot and flatter sections*aft.* To reach that speed the bow should rise.

Love the 16 knot speed story.
