Like the others - I'd like to see how this was calculated.

5400lb boat + 3000 ballast + 360 lbs fuel + riders + gear + beer = about 10,000lbs?

At 10,000 lbs you'll need 3/4 to full throttle to get on plane and considerable amount of fuel and rpm to hold it. I'd say you have some idle time in there somewhere...
