Heading into the seas as we crossed the bar through occasionally breaking surf, we managed a reasonable 25 mph with a pair of 300 hp Mercury Verado outboards on an integral bracket. Having run native pangas around the world, I must tell you that the only thing this Andros boat has in common with those third-world models is appearance. The ride and performance of the Andros are infinitely superior. If you should happen to launch this boat off a wave, the landing is solid and gentle. Turning, docking and time to plane all proved completely satisfactory. We topped out at 58.7 mph pretty heavily loaded. At that, we turned 6,200 rpm while burning 59.6 gph. A reasonable cruise of 34.1 mph sipped a mere 18.7 gph at 4,000 rpm.
