Hi Bengt,
Yes, I believe so. I've spoken to the manufacturer and in a nutshell he said with 2 on board the 50cc 2-stroke should push the boat at about 22-23 knots. If it won't go over 15, walk away.
What also concerns me is that if the water is between the skins (which I reckon it is), the fuel economy will go through the roof, due to the extra weight, depending on how often I used the boat.
I think my mind may already be set to walk away to be honest, as I reckon there'll be the constant niggling in the back of my mind that know all is not as it should be...

: Hello Ali!
: Could it possibly be that this boat is constructed with an outer hull and an inner one with foam in betweewn??
: Regards Bengt

: : Hi,
: : Looking at the above boat, it's been in a marina for years (5-6) with no anti-foul, is 18 years old and the meter readings went off the scale!!
: : Apart from the professional and highly expensive option of having the hull stripped, dried and recoated, is there a cheaper option?
: : Gelshield was recommended by a colleague I thought it best coming from you who are FAR more knowledgable than I :)
: : Any comments welcome - even if they say "walk away from it"
