my overall goal is to break 70 mph. the boat still has 100 gallons of fuel in her and a almost full water tank. i may send the props out and have some pitch taken out and a little more cup added. these motors need to turn 5800 rpm and im getting 5500, and 5300 before raising the motors...

here's a quick video from yesterday morning, she's running consistently at 68mph with half tank of fuel and full water, towards the end of the video you can hear the over-rev alarm coming on. might send the props out to have them labbed. might take the boat to the scream and fly run/BBQ in march

Copying a post I made on scream and fly, tested new props today:

boat: 1991 Fountain 31 TE
motors: 2005 Mercury 250XS mounted on bottom holes(highest setting), with 1.75 fleetmaster top 4 water intake holes pluged
props: 25p Mirage plus
top speed: 68.5-69.9 mph depending on conditions and load
rpm: 5700-5850 depending on conditions/load/trim
really loose/unstable at WOT/trimmed out, very hard to reach the rev limiters

new 26p Bravo One FS
135 gallons of fuel
rpm: 5800-5900 depending on trim
top speed: 72.5 mph
felt more stable at WOT/trimmed out, hit the rev limiters after trimming all the way out

Since I was hitting the rev limiter, I can still go up another inch. Might be able to get 75 mph out of it with a little more tweeking

I am definitely happy with how she runs, feels a little more stable at speed than she did with the mirage plus'... Went out today to get some numbers, amount of trim has a huge effect on mpg, trim was at 17% until 5500 rpm, then trimmed out to 30%

RPM--MPH--MPG
3000--32.4--2.73
3500--43.0--2.36
4000--49.7--1.80
4500--55.8--1.56
5000--62.0--1.35
5500--68.8--1.42**
5900--72.5--?.??**
**trimmed out

Added a Bob's double jack to the boat since I was maxed out on engine height, and allows me to run bigger props easier. The 26p Bravo 1 FS would hit the rev limiters pretty easily with less than a half tank of fuel. New top speed so far is 73.8 mph turning 28p Bravo 1 FS to 5750 rpm and was shooting for +75 mph at the scream and fly run with a lightened load. Ended up blowing up the clutch dog in one of my lower units first day of the trip... sAng_scream

Your boat looks awesome. Almost like a mother ship. Pretty funny it goes almost as fast as those boats as well.
