We had better then 3/4 of fuel in each tank (65 gal. each) and five people and all the gear for the day.
Here is some info. Running 15X32 three blade non-lab Mercury cleaver.
3000 RPM - 34 MPH - Fuel- 7.3 gal. per Hr. each motor
4000 RPM - 56 MPH - Fuel- 9.5 gal. per Hr. each motor
5000 RPM - 80 MPH - Fuel- 14.3 gal. per Hr. each motor
6000 RPM - 96 MPH - Fuel- 22 gal. per Hr. each motor
WOT 6300 RPM - 100 MPH on the rev-limiter did not look at the fuel.
All MPH was verified by Three GPS on board.
Beautiful boat, great numbers, about those three blade cleavers. I hope your gearcases stand up better than most X's or XS's do running 3 blades in a surfacing application. Our sons 28 Skater running 300's is very hard on gearcases, seems they dont like to be run sufacing. Finally gave up and went with 4 blade cleavers, easier on the gearcase, and less vibration. The 3 blades are faster by a couple of miles an hour, but its not worth the wear and tear of rebuilding gearcases 2-3 times a season. Again beautiful boat, good luck and have fun.

[Thanks for the compliment. I appreciate it. I think next Summer I'll get a set of 4 blades and give them a spin.
Here is a Pic at crab Island.

Thanks for the compliment on the boat. I sent the props to Brett at BBlades friday to have them worked up to get off the rev limiters and get more speed.

I've been asked to put the 32' Spectre in the New Orleans boat show at the Super Dome during March 4,5,6,7, 2010. It will be there. Y'all come check out the show.
