    Default Horse power calculater

    I was wondering how to calculate how much horsepower my boat has .I know you can do it with the impeller, but I dont know how and was wondering if you gents did. I have a little 461 chevy in a tunnel with a berkley pump and a SS A/B impeller and inducer and stuffer. The boat is for sale, and I was wanting to tell everyone how much it has. Thanks, Don.

    here is the only chart i have. pick a rpm that your boat goes wide open throttle & inbetween the a & b lines would be where to look. don't mind the purple line it was a estimation for a a3 i did. for example if your boat goes 6200 rpm you would have an estimated h.p. of 700 hp . loose ,worn pumps will rev higher & of course this will not be accurate. now if your putting it on E-bay it's probably a 100 mph boat so if your rpm is 6800 you have @ 925 hp...
