Got used to bumping the throttles to get it into gear at drives fully in. She topped out at 85.2mph at 5200 with the 31pitch 16s on an offshore rum today. wow very impressed on the handling of this hull. Will put the 33 four bladers back on and give it go.

Hey Bigfarmer. noticing we losing some steering fluid. Cant see any high pressure leaks anywhere, little bit of fluid in the bilge. Any ideas?

Speed and RPM sounds about right, slip higher than mine, Farmer - could this pull to 5600 - 5800 RPMs ever? Asking for my own benefit.

For example, I can get about 90mph @ 5200 RPM, BUT, I'm also running 18" dia prop where you are running 16". I would think you could get those RPMs touching the limiters with that smaller diameter prop?....

If trimmed properly ? and you cant pull the 31's past 5200, I think you'd loose rpm's putting the 33's on..........maybe a labbed 30 could get you to 5400. IDK, BF should know for sure.

33`s will lose a bunch of RPM and load the motors , it will become a turd sandwich. 29`s is what you need .

My understanding is this only applies to boats with OB. Inboards and I/O's can stack like cord wood (must be facing it picturesque direction )
