Default 250 Force speed / RPM ?

My brother-out-law just bought a 250 force. I'm not sure what year eighty something. We had some questions about his speeds and RPM's. The boat has twin 185 v-6's the props he's turning are Vortech 14.5 X 19. Were getting 4600 RPM at WOT, and the results are 50 mph.

Questions he has are, what should the wide open throttle RPM be with these motors?

What else can he do to sneak more MPH's out this set up?


BTW. my Brother-in-law is a OSO member but he's little shy so I told him that I would start this thread for him. So feel free to break his balls for being a 200 lbs. Candyass.

No they are Merc I/O's with Alphas

How come I am answering your questions for you McBride? Do I have to put gas in it too.
