I just can't stop smiling -- had the first opportunity to open the boat up tonight, nice smooth sea with 1.5 swells: 43 MPH @ 5500 RPM from the 87 Johnson 150 GTs.

This is just too much fun. Man!

Glad you had a good ride. Sounds as if your prop's are pitched right as you were at max RPM for the engines.

Is your boat an Outrage or Revenge?

PS injoy the holiday!

Revenge -- not as nice as yours, yet, but working on getting her all fixed up. That's the only day I've had a sea state that allowed WOT.

It's really interesting since this is my first twin boat -- I'm feeling like I'm back to square one! I think my engines both rotate the same direction, and I'm trying to figure out how to use the trim/tilt for best effect. It seems like the boat is happiest with the right engine trimmed in (down) a lot more than the left.

I should start a new thread -- how you you drive your twin outboard or how do you trim your twin.

Wih C/R rotating engines the trim for both engines is pretty even port to starbard. The gages are set pretty much set by eye.

The most fun is in port when you can make the boat turn on its central axis or even move sideways due to the twin screw effect! It really blows away the other OB operators!
