  my approach
  Posted by: mintjulep on Mar-27-13 10:31 PM (EST)
 

I know I can sustain about 4.5 knots over any significant distance in my boat.

The speed vs drag curve for my boat shows that speed has 5 pounds of drag.

Therefore my sustainable thrust is 5 pounds.

Next I looked at the curves for some short boats and some 14 foot boats and saw at a drag of 5 pounds there is about half a knot difference.
