Take me out for a ride, and I'll straighten out your GPS

Those # are sweet! Can't imagine when it's all dialed in.

Actually if you go into the setup menu on your GPS, there probably is an option for "units" or something similiar. Right now it's probably set to "Nautical". Change that setting to "Statute" or "Standard".

A ride would be cool still though !

That's true!! I spent the first 2 hours on the water with a new Garmin182C trying to figure out how to get it from knots to mph. Check the menu page for setup mode or...as a last resort, refer to the instructions!!

Great numbers on the boat!!!!! Congrats!!

Very nice!! The blower motor pictured has a mechanical fuel pump. Are you supplementing that with an electric? Just curious.

Hi, No, Those mechanical pump give plenty of presure. I have electric fuel pumps to prime the system. I have them plumbed so I can keep them on if I need more pressure. Do you think the mechanical pumps are not adequate?

No, actually I prefer a mechanical fuel pump. I run one on my NA 598 pushing 800 ish HP and it does fine. I bought the boat and it had an M140 Mallory, which I also use for priming and when running hard I run both. It is good to see you pushing 1000+ HP and the mechanical pump being adequate.
