waterman7474 Posted April 2, 2019 Report Share Posted April 2, 2019 01 DV with Ox66 250. WOT is 54k at 43/44mph with maybe 40gal gas, 2 guys (400lbs) and a 50qt full of ice. 39-40k is around 27-28mph. Hole shot actually seems to be pretty decent but the top end and cruising speed seem to be lacking. Reverse is terrible. This boat is obviously a little heavier than my 19 and it's an older motor so I'm not sure. Only had it a month or so and maybe a dozen runs. Motor is running well. I put in new plugs, new F/W separator, fuel pumps, vst cleaned out, oil set but. I didn't do thermostats or the O2 yet as the housing looks very new compared to everything else so I think it was recently replaced. The prop has one or two small dings and the edges could use a grind but it's far from bordertown bread knife status. There was something on it before and the PO got a smoking deal on this from a mechanic friend he knew so who knows what it came off of. Before I got it, it was being used as a weekend charter boat to the jetties so I doubt if much went into "tuning" it before he put it on, especially considering all the other stuff that was rather carelessly rigged. Not looking to drop a ton of money on wringing every drop out of it but it just seems a little off. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
