    Default Congrats!



    How heavy is your boat's hull? (Edit = it's a light lay up. Mines light also. 450 lbs with intake and loader.)

    Sweet..... I want to play with my current boat over the winter. Then either find a Youngblood project to restore or buy new stage 1 and rig it up.

    With not all the info, my guess would be 80 -85mph.

    Sounds about right. I have about 500 hp and I am running 80 but I have a dialed pump and setup. If I had 600 hp I would probably see 85 or better. Good luck with it. You are gonna love it.

    Also possible that they were running a jetaway. I've got one one on mine and the motor sits 7 1/4" forward of where it was without it.

    On a good day with the stars aligned my 19 would run 80 mph on the motor (500 hp) and 87mph with a 150 shot.

    I do know that there must be the proper balance in the boat depending on what you are running it for (race/river). If you really want to air it out then you want the seats and the motor as far back as possible, but don't go too far. This is one of the reasons to set back the pump (there are a few other reasons). Your motor may be in the optimum position for your setup or if it had more power when it was setup then it might be hindering you. If you aren't going to race it then I wouldn't worry too much about where it is exactly. I know I could do a lot to get more out of mine but it would also cost a lot more for exactly how much gain??? the only way to find out is to move the motor back, if you have the ability and resources, and run it to see if yo improve. Have fun, there are so many things that can be done to these boats to improve performance that you could go crazy and broke looking for the magical sweet spot.
