Sounds like you are very happy with your boat and don't need 150ish more horse to get your prop in the sweet spot talking pitch being ran.digginfool wrote:14.5 gallons for 2.8 mpg. Not too bad for an over-propped pig.digginfool wrote:Using the parental copout of 'because I said so' doesn't cut it. How about some hard numbers? For me, today, I ran 40.38 miles at an average speed of 26.4 mph. At 2,400 rpm I was going 22.8 mph. At 2,700 rpm, 27.5 mph and at 3,200 rpm, I was going 33.2 mph. Two boats got stuck where I feathered the throttle. Tell me how my boat is over propped. Tomorrow, after I top ofc the fuel, I'll tell you my mileage.
I been in the Oilfield since I was a pup. I like this type (Oilfield) communication.
