I am repowering a 1990 Pro 530 Hull currently and I am trying to fully understand your numbers on the performance that you have had with the 75ETEC.
You were able to achieve mid 40MPH with a very light load and 37MPH with four on board and 25 gallons fuel, correct? What pitch a prop are you spinning to get to these numbers?
I'm considered the Suzuki DF90, or add risk a little more weight on the transom and go with a 115 Yamaha but if you are able to reach 37MPH loaded that seems pretty reasonable, although that is running WOT.
Thanks in advance!

I got the tubes from Defender where I work. Unfortunately the price jumped a bit since last year but if you want send me a PM and I'll get you a price.
My boat is actually torn apart once again. The deck has been removed and I have installed a belly tank under the deck. I also bought a new console, T-top and bolster for it. I am trying to make it a little more comfortable and gain some storage. The plan is to also fabricate a bow locker into it as well.
