Magic Sandbar - You need to get your 496HO off of 4,500 rpm

I have them also, if I wait I can see 4800, will lab the props this winter! ps: don't forget anchor, rode, docklines, misc. sunscreen, etc

Kents, I will be getting my Lab finished prop back Tuesday and I am hoping to get 4800-4900 rpm and I'll see if I can hit 95 (hehe).

96Vyper, I don't know if you are intrested in a hustler, but there's a 99 388 slingshot for sale at the Awesome factory on 26 mile west of I-94 a few miles. They took it on trade and are only asking $139,000 which is real cheap for that boat. It has 502 mags in it. It's on the boats for sale board on oso. Then you wouldn't have one of a thousand fountians & formula's out on st clair.

Kentz, I have two props, one for Lake Powell(3600') a 22" and a 24" for Havasu. At Powell I am getting 53.8 mph @ 4600 rpm and I have not sent the 24" in for Lab yet. I sent the 22" to Bronson Hill.

My 2001 FASTech 382 with HP500EFI's will do 95MPH in the ocean, but I've never seen it do that. That's because I have the following:

200 gallons of gas = 1300lbs
20 gallons of fresh water = 160lbs
24 beers (12oz) = 18lbs
4 people = 600lbs
1 generator = 500lbs
1 TV/VCR = 50lbs
1 900W entertainment system = 35lbs
1 Refrigerator = 75lbs
1 7000BTU A/C unit = 150lbs
1 Potty holding tank = depends
1 60amp battery charger = 35lbs
1 Set of tools = 10lbs
1 Coast guard kit with flares = 3lbs
1 Anchor w/250' 5/8" line and 15' chain = 30lbs
4 Subway sandwiches (double meat) = 2lbs
1 Set of extra boat keys = .25lbs

So.....with Lab-Finished props, I get 75MPH. If I start unbolting things and tossing them overboard, who knows? I just may see 95.
