Thread: New best

  1. #1

    New best

    E 82
    L 78
    ripples to light chop....and a few wakes thrown in.

    72.5 @ 8100 .....with a full tank of fuel.

    It's killing me here.....at the end of the day, with 3 bars of fuel, I couldn't find any flat water.

    I added the mm I had taken out prior to my last run...now it looks like I gotta add at least one more. On my last attempt....before I quit for traffic....I saw 69.7 @ 8150. I haven't seen that rpm in two years or better.

    In a coupla weeks, after I add another mm to the prop I'll go out early with the same fuel load.....try one more time before it starts getting cold.

    I love this.....but it sucks too.

    Brent,

    You're killing me.

    I sat out on the back porch drinking coffee this morning, just looking at my ski......knowing I coulda done better....and having to wait.

    Where'd you find the extra speed?
