    hello everyone,
    can anyone tell me what speed i can expect, i have bought a 27ft fletcher zingaro and striped it out to make it a bit lighter. i have replaced the old 5.7litre mercruiser and alpha 1 drive with a 200hp volvo @3900rpm and a new volvo 290 duoprop drive.

    Difficult to say.

    Take a GPS, it would log you speed for you.

    My prediction is 33.8 Kt. Not based on anything except that's the first number that popped into my last little lonely brain cell.
