Default Collection of boat test speeds

Found this online, thought I'd share it. Has alot of boats listed and their power/speed numbers from magazine tests.

Nordic 28 Heat stepped, 502 (415hp) 62.3mph
Nordic 28 Heat stepped, 496HO (425hp) 70.1

Ummm...10 more hp yields almost 7mph? Ok. Something's wrong, I had the 496 and the 62.3 is pretty accurate but I saw 67 once going with a stiff wind, going with the tide, cold air, one person, not much in the tank. Never duplicated. I call BS on the 70.1

Anyway, interesting site. My PP speed with 502s was pretty accurate at ~ 77

Cool link, but now I'm annoyed. I was 5mph slower than their speed. D**n it!
