68 is pretty bad with a 525, regardless of temp, something is wrong there. Thatís 496 speed. I have two buddies with 525s going 79 and 80 which is pretty normal. I have a 24 hydro and I easily hit 70 before I even start trimming the boat. Tabs at 2.5-3 and Iíll pull the drive to 5 depending on conditions.

Keep in mind the the swim platform of a 32 sits extremely low in the water and the cockpit of a 32 is the same size as a 27. Itís very small. You wonít see more speed with those motors in a 32 compared to 29 single with right motor. 29 to a 35 is the only move that makes sense when going bigger.

Sorry to hijack OP.
plus your probably 50 hp more than the 500

30 hp difference between the two and the 525 is supposedly close to 100lbs heavier

A 525 has aluminum heads so it should be about 75lbs lighter than a 500 efi, not 100 lbs heavier.
