My buddy just redid his 21 fusion and we finally got to run it the other day. Went from a 150 Yamaha to a 250 SHO. Full rewire, dual powerpoles, 10 inch jackplate, Lowrance 12 inch, some custom cushions, and had the console custom painted black with carbon fiber panels. Came out awesome and she screams! So far we have seen 68.7 MPH and working on hitting the 70 mark. What a blast it is to do some prop testing again. Ill snap some more photos this evening but it turned out beautiful and has a really classy look

 

PS: if anyone has any 24-27 pitch props they would be willing to let us try, let me know!

Little update! Swapped out the livewell grate for one completely flush and BAM, 74.6 mph light. Livewell grate was causing major slip and speed loss.

Boat was extremely stable at that speed and spun the 26.5 bravo all the way to 6000 rpm. 

This boat went from 47 mph with a 150 4 stroke to 74.6 with a 250 SHO. WOWW!!

That is awesome! Hope you buy him a nice lunch.:D

Can you elaborate on the grate maybe with a pic?  No matter what prop I run or the work done to them my slip numbers are always on the high side.  I always just thought it was the hull.

I would also like to see that grate.  Awesome numbers and awesome looking fusion.  (Time for a Nizpro tune?! :))

If the sea chest grate is a standard size, I will sign up for one!!!!!!!!!  I have my paypal ready to go!

I just didn't realize that the metal grate wasn't completely flush to begin with?   I am dropping my boat in the water today, and am going to take a look.

Baits gonna die:P

 

The added drag is from picking up water. At 74 MPH the bait is gonna die without helmets anyhow.

 

Just busting chops, but sitting on that leaning post at 74 is for you young thunder cats. One chine dip or a need to turn fast your out of there.

 

Race boats always have the driver low in the cockpit. Never above the gunnels in a seat.
