I know there have been a few discussion items in the past about after market boat covers. If you own the boat long enough, and the cover is subject to inclement weather, it will wear out. I also...

Your transmission is a 1.76, rather than the older boats which came with 1.50's usually, so your rpm's will be higher. Our '17 F24 with the Raptor 440 cruises at about 29-30 mph at 4200-4400, but...

Good reviews everyone. The only thing I would adjust is that it's not CO2 that is the problem. You're worried about CO. Carbon Dioxide vs. Carbon Monoxide (which is the deadly exhaust gas we're...

You may have answered this previously, but you mentioned only seeing 22 mph at your WOT of 5200-5600. Is that just a quick reading before you reduce throttle, as I would expect you to be well into...

Shawn,
Thanks for the info on the 343 redline. I thought somewhere around 5300-5500 would be the number. However altitude is absolutely not a limiting factor to redline performance on an...

There's also a couple of other things to consider. Does the owner know what max RPM's he gets without ballast, at WOT? He should be seeing somewhere between 5300-5500 rpm's. If not that would...

You're probably boating at Jordanelle. The engine will make a difference, and if the prop is an ACME 1355, rather than the ACME 1433, the boat will struggle at altitude, with a full load. As for...
