you are running more weight than I have. I prefer using rpm based control for my perfect pass. I just take off and run 300-400 past the setpoint and let the pp back the speed down. It settles in pretty solid. The pitot tube systems never worked very well, that is why they came up with the paddle. Can you run the accuski in rpm mode? The issue is whether you are planing or not. If you are on plane the prop will slip less making the boat go faster at the same rpm. That is why I go a little faster than come back down. Boats plane at about 15 mph unweighted, faster when you add weight. If you are running 1000lbs and want to go 16 mph it will be difficult for the speed control to do it's job. Over 20 mph you shouldn't have too much trouble.
