Welcome aboard

I would think you should be able to achieve high 40ís easily. What is the WOT you are getting? What are the conditions; wave height, number of passengers, other gear?

How are you measuring speed? Speedometer, or GPS?

Wide Open Throttle, WOT is the maximum throttle position. Only run here for a few minutes and note the max rpm and mph. Should get 4400-4800 rpm.

Boat speedo are know to not work well if the pick up is got debris in it. Download a gps app on your phone and test with it.

Agreed, that is exactly what I was getting at.
