let's do the math based on the honda 9.9 specs

5500 rpm, 2.33/1 gear ratio, 11" pitch solas prop


5500/2.33 = 2360 rpm at prop

2360 x 11" = 25960" = 2163 feet = 0.41 miles

0.41 x 60 = 24.6 mph

10% slippage 2.5 mph

Top speed light load = 22 mph

Nope not going to get 27 mph unless the boat's on the trailer going down the road.


Yep, the Slipper with a Merc 9.9, topped out at 22.5 mph averaged top speed
after 4 runs up and back the same channel, measured by gps.
