Acceleration Curve



 

Now here is a sweet acceleration curve, with no slumps, bumps, or other anomalies denoting inefficient areas in the power band. The boat is well into the planing mode after just ten seconds and achieves wide-open-throttle speed in a little more than 23 seconds—not bad for a pocket battlewagon with enough equipage onboard to double as a cruiser.

· Acceleration based on average of 4 reciprocal runs.
