Yeah, we all know that. He has spent over $20,000 trying to get it right, but to no avail. They said it was good for 137. No way. He hasn't seen 115. It's been back to Scism twice. It should obviously be a ****load faster, but it's not. The worst part is, it's not ever gonna be. They (Scism) are out of options.Originally posted by mcollinstn
Cigracer, your friend with the 42MTI better call someone and get some help on his boat.
The twin 575SCi BMAX boat I spoke of runs 107 with a half tank of fuel and 2 people.
The previous 42MTI had #6 drysumps and Sterling 1000's. It ran 138 with a light fuel load.
Both of these boats had full cabin (porta potty, though, not vacu flush).
Your friend's boat should be much faster than you speak of.
And speed or luxury is true. My 18' TunnelVee runs 110 with 280 horses. A 30 Spectre will run 140 with twin 850's. Neither of these 2 boats can run wide open in the same water that a 42 MTI can run in.
It's all relative.
