You might give some thought to reading the comments contained in the article http://continuouswave.com/ubb/Forum8/HTML/000571.html which discusses the 18-DAUNTLESS model. (Article updated in the last ten days.

Please note that I was able to locate that article because it had a TOPIC line that contained information about the subject. As I mentioned to your earlier, posting an article with the subject "information on boat" is highly NOT RECOMMENDED. Virtually all of the articles on this website contain information about boats. [Changed TOPIC]

According to BW the performance data for 2002 Dauntless 180 with 135 Optimax:
43.6 mph @5500 rpm
0-30 mph in 5.6 sec.
time to plane in 3.9 sec
prop is 15 1/2X17 P Mirage
Fuel use will depend on how you plan on using the boat
