I am going to guess again here about 6-7 knots tops, after that you are pushing water until on plane, very inefficient...

Thanks, bud37
It's hull speed or planning speed (anything in between the two is just pushing water), cheers :-)
I'll do the math on hull speed, now all I need is the minimum planning speed and I'm halfway through my quandry.

Cheers, Pete :-)
