Yep, important. Could do it at ten hours, that gets 90% of the break-in products compared to 20hr.

Hp and weight numbers sound sort of reasonable.

But what you are missing is RANGE. 700lb of batteries might get you five to ten miles on plane. 200gal of gas might get you 200miles.

Yep, an inspection by Cat at $350/engine does not sound like a full assessment with an instrumented sea trial. Maybe a quick look and test run dockside. A full assessment will be more than that.

Yea, you might be only 35, but if you won't try a glaze on steak you are an old stick in the mud!!! Just tell your daughter you'd rather have the raspberries on your corn flakes.

Unless running wide open, you will never know if there was another 5-10hp available. If you consistently run WOT and like that extra 2mph, go for it.

So looks like the excess deaths in fall of 2020 are about the same as the excess deaths in early 2018. Hmm.
