1741Re: [AtkinBoats] Twinkle Twinkle little boat
- Jan 2, 2008Hi Russ,
I would guess that this boat should not be driven any faster than 15-20
mph. One clue here is the last sentence in the description where Atkin
"Remember Twinkle is not a racing boat."
The hull design with its straight run and flat bottom aft suggest that
it is designed to be a planing boat, so it could probably be driven
faster than this with a bigger engine.
But if you use a 10 HP inboard and it won't push the boat faster than
say 15 mph, higher theoretical speeds won't really matter anyways.
