One of our group at the Rappahannock has your boat and engine. Coming from a pair of old Ford-Lehman 6-cylinder 120 HP engines with WOT around 2400 but cruised at 16-1800, this 315 HP Yanmar spinning at 3000-plus at planing cruise was also daunting. There are things I would do on the old Lehmans like setting valves that I will not even think of here.
