Replaced the plugs and a few bits and pieces today, she went into the water! Thanks for your advice on a previous email guys!
Shes a 5.25 osprey with twin 60hp 3 cylinder mariners '96.
Advice here would be great -please.
One engine tops out at 5000rpm and the other 4700rpm, as the engines are old would it matter trying to squeeze the last 500-700 rpm out of them? (one is a little bit smokey). Someone on the site said they should be at 5500rpm.
Props are currently 15p. One is damaged, all blades are intact but 2 out of three blades are out of shape not horrific but noticable. This is also the engine with 4700 rpm not sure if thats related to prop damage. But its also the weaker engine (smokier)
Boats currenty doing 28/29 knots
If I go to a bigger prop eg 16p, will that increase top end speed but reduce accelleration but also increase fuel economy, find the prop side confusing
Any advice welcome
Still smiling from the day out
