Highest I have pushed it to date is 98mph with 6 adults and full tank of gas so far. And it was still pulling along. That was with max 5 28 props at 5800rpm at 4.4%slip in 115 degree weather at Saguaro lake in AZ which is 1600 ish. Did not log humidity. Yes you read the slip correctly. Lol. Traded the 29 back as we had one early and late and were getting an rpm differential of 200rpm). I will say this. Props were worth every penny. Corrected the heavy nose and rides better than ever before. Zero planing issues. Max I ever trim up is 1 level from neutral. Thats all it takes. Starts packing air in the low 60s where before it took every bit of 80-85. To give a fair top speed run I am waiting for 75-80 degree weather to regain some of the ponies being lost ( roughly 13%). That I feel will be more on par with what most people see for weather. Logged about 35 hours so far. Not a luck of a hiccup yet. Very good runners. Very fuel efficient. Burned 50 gallons in 6 trips to the lake as of last fill up but was mostly cruising due to kids at avg of 70 mph.
SB, 242LS and Gimme Fuel like this.

Oil is currently rotella 15-40. Will be switching to 10-40 possibly 10-30. Most likely good plain ol mobil 1.
