      Nice video! From your description, I'd say you are WAY over-propped tho! LOL

          Would it not be under propped since my engines are running 100 rpm too high?

            Excellent video - this is a real keeper, and will let you re-live your boating experience for years to come.

            The boat itself looks awesome.

                You know what you meant to type, but this is what you typed:

                "In this short video of our Bayliner 4588 (4788), we are traveling on Lake St-Pierre which is part of the St-Lawrence seaway. With ¼ fuel, 2 people aboard and ¾ water, we were able to achieve 17 knots at 3050 rpm. The original magazine fuel consumption for the Bayliner 4588 indicates the top RPM is at 27970. So I might have the props checked to see if I can squeeze an extra knot out of the vessel."

                At that RPM, she should be drinking some JP-5.

                    I really enjoyed watching your video, nice work! I also like the hull color. Is that original from Bayliner? Looks really sharp.

                      Beautiful thanks for sharing. What kind of drone? I have a small one and I’m afraid of losing it.

                        LOL, yep, that would be quite a feat at that RPM I'll go and chnage the typo

                          No, it's a multi part paint that I did a few years ago from Imron, 3.5 high gloss. I have the color code somewhere if you're interested.

                            It's an older Dji Phantom 4. Best tricks I can give when launching from the boat are these:
                            Remove the return home option for signal loss or low battery
                            Make sure your boat is at dead stop before launching. I zoom in my gps to make sure I'm not moving, especially if I'm in an area with current.
                            Have someone catch it instead of trying to land it on deck.

                            As for losing it, looks at it like this, if it falls from 50 feet in the air, it will be totalled anyways if it hits the ground instead of water. The only positive side of the ground is that you won't lose your memory card.
