Top speed T40 2 people fishing?

Post by Namibiafrank » 10 Aug 2018, 10:35

Guys i have been out several times on a relative flat sea and never managed over 20knts on the t40 with a 20hp honda.
The t40 is a heavy boat i know and two guys with fishing kit does this seem fair or do i need to change something?
I am on the second hole and i am sure the ob is fully run in by now :scratch
I keep reading guys going over the 20knts is that on the airfloors only?
I keep telling myself i dont need to go faster :sarky
Might go out over the weekend bare boat alone and see how i get on :drive
Any feedback would be great Thanks Frank,

I would say 20 knots is pretty good going for such a heavy boat and 2 up,

I get over 20 knots on my T38 with a 15hp on the back, but it’s a good bit lighter than the T40,

Thanks Paul, fair enough that's what I thought, though I might still take a solo and see how we get on.
Will report on a full speed test!

Be interesting to see your speed test. I have the same set up and fish on my own most of the time. I am not to bothered with speed but wot last weekend on my own with fishing kit I touched 22 mph. To fast for me i am quite happy plodding along at 15 mph or so enjoying the scenery.
