Re: New AirRanger Set up ?

duckman5849, Im not sure if you are on Facebook or not but Southeast tx airboats group has quite a few people in the rockport area who would probably be more than willing to give you a hand.

Re: racor filter rust

I know this is an old thread but I seem to have the same problem the original poster had as well. My racor is on the pressure side of the pump, and this particular one is relatively new.

Drag racing boat lengths

Not sure where to post this.......Curious how much more Hp it would take to gain about 2boat lengths in a drag race? Same boat different power plant, Me and a friend raced and he is building another engine. Wondering if I’d have a shot still.

Re: 76" NGQ RPM

I like where it is at as far as cruise rpm and normal usage. Just was curious if the extra 100 or so rpm would make that much difference. Mines a 300 hp upstack. I believe it was a tio engine but is now a carbed setup with n/a

Re: 76" NGQ RPM

I double checked my rpm, according to my pacemaker read out I'm at 2650 wide open on the trailer. Coincidentally my mechanical tach went out between the original post and now so it may have been off. I have a replacement on the way.

76" NGQ RPM

I currently turn the prop 2600 wide open on the water. I like the cruise rpm and seem to be able to do everything I need, but was curious on wether or not the extra 100-150 rpm would give any more push. Thanks for the input
