I now like easing the Albin -25's throttle forward to 2000 RPM after clearing the harbor as much as I used to enjoy shutting down our 9.9 "Yammerhammer" outboard when under sail.

We tow our Albin with a Dodge powered by a 5.9L Cummins Diesel (met some Motor Cruisers using that same engine) and there may now be a detent worn into the throttle linkage for 62 MPH on a level road. We can really peel off the miles, at that setting, with just a bit of a slowdown for steep hills, and a corresponding faster roll down the other side.
