Re: New boat , 2.68 ox box with 76" 3 blade r

The the resistance of the Gearbox and prop should put you very close to your expected Max RPM (If it doesn't you will never reach your maximum potential) Your Max RPM is dictated by quality of your motor build and best measured in piston speed FPM (Feet Per Minute). If you have a new build you must ...

Re: New boat , 2.68 ox box with 76" 3 blade r

6200 Engine RPM / 2.68 Gear reduction will put you at 2313 RPM on the prop. Verify what the max RPM rating is for your particular prop before reducing any pitch it may be 2400 RPM many of the 3 blades are, some are 2800 RPM. If you add more it will bring your prop speed-tip speed down and you may ge...

Re: New boat , 2.68 ox box with 76" 3 blade r

Take a sturdy rod and clamp it to your transom so you can gauge the adjustments past the mark. Make very small adjustments. I've seen some 383's with 3 to one way over pitched and running great. Just don't lug your motor. Your motor has a sweet spot where your HP and Torque will work together. Small...

I also posted on the "3A water level" thread, but I copied it here to better the chances of receiving the message. Ill add one more thing, there were about a dozen boats that ran out to the tower from Holiday park, that's mostly East - West running and they had no low water problems to report. :The ...

Re: Area 3A South water dropping steadily

The water is low but not too low, I would dare to say just right. I Ran from 40 Mile bend on Tamiami Trail up to the tower and on to the Rez land just below 75. Some of the trails pushing east and west are lightly patchy at worst and most if not all of the North south trails have plenty of H20. I ra...

There should be water during Thanks Giving, It has just come down fast. I haven't found any dry ground yet. I will be in the area tomorrow. I will Stick an Oar in the water and rest it on some rocks along the bank of the canal where the bend is. This bend is a popular access point to the swimming ho...

Re: AIRGATOR, LS2 6.0, SENSINICH R SERIES, ROTATOR 2.38, NEED ADVICE

I am running a 383 Stroker with about 450 HP and 485 Torque. I just switched from a short hub 76" overall to a long hub 80" overall. When I switched from a 76" overall length to a 80" overall length I had to reduce pitch from just past the 3 mark to just past the 2 mark. The end result was an increa...

Frogging has been OK, not spectacular. If you push east further into the grasslands you will do better. Have fun be safe I will hit you on 68 when i'm in the area. I'm out there at least a couple times a week.

On plane 23-25 mph 2400 rpm 30-32mph 28-2900 rpm 45-50mph 36-3700rpms 60mph 4200 rpms best I can remember. My combo works great for a 15ft heavy deckover. When trail ride I prefer to jus...
