Re: goofy Martha Jane Revised movie
- I don't remember for that shot, but generally speaking, with the mast in motoring position
(horizontal, but boosted up a little to accommodate the bimini) if I crank the motor (8HP
4-stroke "power thrust" 4 blade) the boat will go a tad over 6knots. But it squats and, due
to the free flooding well for the swing-up rudder, you will get your feet wet in the cockpit
My cruising speed is about 4.5 knots. There is hardly a wake, and the motor is I guess
around 1/2 throttle. It makes for a nice ride, fast enough, and easy on the ears.
Thanks for asking.
