1800 RPM is the speed my boat's PO recommended as top cruising speed... at that RPM I can get between 5 and 6 knots with my Volvo MD11C. So, with the same hull and same RPM you should be able to do as well... I have a fixed three bladed prop, but don't know what the pitch is.

As an aside, my boat's PO put in an oversized heat exchanger and I always run under 200 degrees (assuming my temp guage is working!).

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
