  2 man load, have see 69 with light 2 man load and cold weather  
  at 5900 rpm. Will experiment some more in Spring, and also  
  may have Rich Boger tweak the prop. If anyone has any good  
  advice on setup for this boat, drop me an e-mail.  
  So far it seems like lower motor height creates better  
  lift and higher speeds.  Boat handles and turns great. I will keep  
  you updated. By the way, the built-in blacklights are awesome  
  if you nightfish much! "
