    It may need a little love, but I'd say Brian picked a good one.

That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    Pretty impressive for a 21' boat with an older outboard motor.
    Good choice and now you have something you can USE too.

    Just think of what it would do with one of those 300 drag motors !!

    I love my drag motor, but it is not a useable lake motor. 100 is right around the corner for Brian if he throws a few bucks at the motor over the winter. There is a lot to be said for pump gas. The prop he blindly bought on e-bay is amazing. I'm going to try a couple of my Hoss's on it tomorrow if it is still decent.

    It gets used alot. I've used over 100 gallons since July and if my math is right I'm getting around 3-4 mpg. I love this boat!

    Nope, I forgot someone used a temp sender wire for the tach signal. I'll hook it back up in the morning. Generally a PM will pull to about 7k before the ecu really kills it with fuel, so by numbers the prop slip is 5-6%. It flat hooked up and hauled today. I ran a dozen passes and they were all within +/- 2 tenths of a MPH of the picture. The water pressure gauge you put in is wacked too.

    why do you say a drag is not a useable lake motor?

    My 21 Daytona is the most fun boat I've ever had.
    The thing gave me some big time scares over the last couple years though which proves it can take some wild launches, outrageous HP and still recover.
    I've got the boost turned down to 10 # and it is much safer now.
    I'm glad I didn't get one of these in a 19' hull.

    $8.00 a gallon fuel and a very limited life span compared to a 225 pro max.

    Nice job guys!! Curious about prop and rpm too. Hmmmm, my drag has 160 pounds compression on 93 pump gas. I tested 5 props today, 3-22's and 2-24's up in Grand Rapids. All under 1/4 mile between 95 and 96.9 mph with the lake boat. I won't make Wamplers, I'm heading to Jasper, TN!!!
