Hello Stephan,

I’ve fitted a Beta 14 to A1.  I could have fitted a Beta 12, but as it’s exactly the same size as the 14, I chose the latter.  The 14 revs higher – hence the greater HP output.  Run for the first time last Tuesday – seven hours, sweet as a nut.  Hard to tell just yet, but appears to be just a tad over  one litre per hour at 1800 revs through a 2:1 gearbox.  This gave us 4.5 knots  through the water.  No doubt that higher revs more than possible – higher fuel consumption but 6 knots easily.


Cheers, Mike
