I have a 1760dlx with a 45hp honda. Both are as old as dirt. WOT is 34-35mph with me and 12 gallons. I know that Tohatsu is stronger by a fair margin. I would say 35+.

OB33 will do that at 33-38mph while getting 1.5-1.7. I ran in some NASTY 3-4s last Saturday in my OB27. 44 miles to the hill. 34mph. Auto pilot on. Averaged 2.0mpg. Never once touched the wheel.

That is really really poor workmanship. I would probably just pay him to go away, chock it up to experience, and re-do it myself. The glass was never wetted properly, the stringers were not bedded...
