Its a little low. Mine ran 66.7 stock with 4 hours on it. and I weigh 225 lb.
Check belt tension, plugs maybe. You should be running at least 65 with your weight. Also your BOV might be leaking early.

well, 95 is pretty hot. Was it really 95 out on the water?

yes it was 95F during the top days in summer it reach 48 degrees Celsius = 118.4 degrees Fahrenheit, guess cold weather help to gain few miles and speed I'm I right?
