Fairly aggressive break in results

Just completed the 10 hour break in.I didn't really follow the manual suggestions and went with a more aggressive approach. Everything so far seems to be running great. The spark is a 3 up H0.
Running in open SaltWater and it was a bit windy and choppy today. Maxed out in touring mode at 43.5 and confirmed it with a GPS. I weigh 215 pounds.
It was too rough to try the same in the sport mode. I will do it on the first calm day. I ran with a little less than half a tank. I tried the same earlier in the break-in and did not get as good results. At that time I was running with a full tank. I don't know whether it's the difference of weight, the water conditions or the fact that the engine is broken in at this point. Pretty pleased with the results and I plan to do an oil change at this time even though it's not required according to the manual.

Were you worried about coming down on the unit after you jumped the waves?
That's why I didn't try to top it out in Sport mode. I have since tried that on a calmer day. Got to 50 which may or may not be top end but no way do I have the guts to sustain the throttle unless it's flat out there. In the waters where I use the ski any more than 50 mph would probably be useless for me.
