A phantom with twin 325 GM's has to be a reasonable reason

Maybe you'd like to share what you think you know about phantom 28's, or GM's for that matter!, nothing I suspect. you'll fit in well here on Fibnet!

Now, now JF. Just remember who used to come here and tell fibs.

And, M---s is on your site too.

And, your comparison between the Volvo and the Yanmar was not quite fair. The Kad300 gives only 272hp at the prop. (284.9 crankshaft). Why Volvo call it a 300 is anyones' guess, but that's another matter.

--------------------------------------------

Nope, Pete F is not the only one on here using a Volvo.

The Volvo also produces considerably more power below 2000rpm than the Yanmar because it runs a supercharger at lower revs and this crosses over to the turbocharger as the revs rise. I bet, although they may be reluctant to admit it, there are many Yanmar users out there who struggle in steep seas - open the throtle wide to get some response from the motor, it just begins to pick up by the time the crest arrives but so does the turbo. Off they shoot, at the wrong moment, just to have to throttle back and start all over again trying to get the bow to lift out of the trough. Tedious.

--------------------------------------------

Mike G, 6 tons does seem high, even with ballast. Did you not say, a wee while ago, you had a very bad trip into a head sea?

JW.

JF, looking at the pics of your boat you need to get down to her a little more often and pump them bilges or she is surely going to sink with the water in there. Alternatively do as Pepper suggested glue some tubes on and she will sit level then.

More excellent free advice for you from your friends on Ribnet, what more could you ask for,

Alan, you could ask him if his boat is a real one or was it splashed ? That should set the fireworks going nicely,

Pete

I know that your Phantom looks like a submarine in that pic.

Very good ladies! I'll come back and have another look at Fibnet in a few days and see if any of you have learnt anything about boats, no hang on, let's make it a few years! LOL
