Donz,

Welcome to the best board of the WWW.

I have a 88 F-33 with 97 250 Merc EFI's. Not a speed demon at all. The boat is heavy and depending on how it's rigged you will be lucky to see mid 50's.
Mine is a SUV that I use to run between Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands--dive, fish, screw around.

Loaded down with 300 gals, gear and 4 people I see 43-45 mph at 5600 rpm, turning 14 1/4 X 19, 4 blade offshore merc props eating around 50 gph.

I cruise around at 4300-4600 rpm @ 25 gph hitting mid 30's.

If you lighten the boat up and don't haul around all the B.S. I do you might get mid 50's.

I like the boat a lot even though its not fast. It looks fast and is very, very affordable. I cant imagine selling it, but can image buying boats in addition to it, like a 28 Pantera to have around as a Hot Rod.

Brad

Call me if you want to talk more about the boat. 787.525.5054

bsc,

looks like we have a similar setup, my boat is being repowered as we speak....from 200 Oceanrunners to 250 EFIs.....I rarely fill the tank....who needs 300 gals unless crossing to Bimini.....I usually keep at 1/3 to 1/2 full.....with 200's, three people spinning mirage plus 19's I cruised at 37 turning 4,600....don't know the fuel consumption.....top end though was low 40s.......

hoping these engines will allow me to turn 21' and perhaps increase cruise to low 40s and top end to mid 50s....I'll be happy with that......you are right though, pound for pound, it is a solid hull that doesn't mind going "offshore" in "big" water, I really like the boat...............think I'll install flow meters

Since your relationship is going to be over anyways, howz about at least posting a picture of her? In the uncensured section preferably!
