I wonder why the different size fuel tanks. Mine's an 86 and holds 102 gallons.

Purchased an 88 242 LS this weekend. Good shape, 502 (50 hours), white with blue graphics. Ran 62.8 on GPS in the heat with the wrong prop. Was turning 5300 with a 23P mirage. Boat rides so nice!

Thumbs up

242-502,
Welcome to the board and congrats on the new "Bird". As you eluded to, something is not dialed in quite right. Your 242 should be capable of high 60s with that 502. I know of several 242s with 454Mags that do an honest 63-64 mph.

Keep tweekin' her, she'll fly a little faster.

Thanks Thirdbird,
First upgrades will be prop, exhaust manifolds, and I gotta get a set of bolster seats.
I'll keep everyone posted on the progress.


I'll post a pic when my account get straightened out.

Any prop Ideas?

Good luck on that. The lack of bolsters is the ONLY thing I didn't like about my 242.
