Default New Best in Friends Boat 85mph.

So we finally got to test out a enw prop on a buddys boat.

Its a Fountain SC (24 foot), 502, with a procharger.

he normally runs a 28p 4 blade, and then he did the blower, so he has been playing with a 30p 4 blade, and still has more throttle, so we tried a 32p 4 blade.

with the 30p, it did 83 with just him in it.
with the 32p, it did 85 with both of us in it. but still high in the rpms, 5200 WOT, so not much room at all for error! (fuel cut rev limiter)....boat felt great though.

the boat was regular steering, stock 502. 28p

then blown 502.

then blown 502 with 30p

then blown 502 with 28p, and full hydrolic streering

and now blow 502, full hydrolic, and 32p.

drove my self and its like a jet on the river! haha (all speeds where GPS)

I always loved those little Fountains since the first time I saw one at the Ft. Lauderdale show many years ago.
