so i took my 260 out for the first time this year with my new upper drive freshly installed.
the boat is a 02 260 with a 500 efi, bravo xz drive combo. i have a hydromotive Q4 27p prop on it now. My problem is it seems like it takes forever for the boat to get on plain. Once on plain i can only get about 4800 rmp out of it at about 72-73 mph per the speedo. The motor fires right up and sounds great and all the vitals are ok.
it could be that my last boat would litterly jump onto plane and thats why it seams like this boat take so long. But a 500 efi spinning a 27p four blade should do better than 4800 rpm. Any ideas as to were to start?
