More good news today. I got to go out with a full boat. Myself and my three kids, I have been told that they are mine anyway. Set the trim to the third hole from the transom. Full throttle all the way across the bay. We hit 29 mph most of the time. There is no sound at all coming from the enigne. The added 275 pound did cost me 3 mph but the engine is not hitting the rev limiter any longer. It does take about 7 seconds to get on full plane with this load. With only one kid it is under 3 seconds. I need to get the tach on it to check the RPM.

Thanks

Nick
