    Dear All,

    the Volvo DPH sterndrive starts to lose eff at 45knots. I want to look at going 50 knots - 60knots.

    Does anyone have (or know where I can get hold of) the Volvo DPR Efficiency vs Speed curves?

    I am also looking at jets and surface piercing props. Plotting the jet thrust is easy but does anyone know where I can get hold of surface piercing prop eff vs speed??
