boat speed

Recommended Posts

On the Kudzu Craft website, Jeff says that the Ravenswood model is a fast cruiser with good performance in the range of 3 to 4.5 mph; however, resistance increases dramatically at 5 mph. I believe he got that right. I paddled in a 5K race on Sunday in my Ravenswood and finished in 41:02. Doing the math, this represents a mean speed of 4.5 mph. Jeff, that's good hydrodynamic engineering!  Below is a photo of my boat from a day of more relaxed paddling.
