scanned the posts for a similer questions and found some, but not all answered my question.
Have a 1980 13 with a 1999 30hp Yam, no trim and tilt.
Runs 32 mph WOT per my GPS.One 200lb goon and 6 gallons gas.
From what I hear and read...sounds about right?

What are your RPM's? You may be able to get more but then it will suffer bigtime when you add another person or 2.

rpms were pegged on 5500, right where they needed to be.......probably will suffer with another person but not really that concerned.....its a tri-hull for god's sake....why would anyone want to go any faster than that.

Yup if you went up in pitch you could get 35+ @ 5100 but with added weight she would suffer. I was just wondering if you were over revving but you are OK.
