I'm interested in what some of the 190 Outrage owners are getting in top MPH at WOT with their respective engines. Using the GPS, I'm getting 43-MPH max at WOT at approxiamtely 5950 rpms with a 150 Verado. The bottom is painted, 1/2-FULL tank of fuel, trim tabs full up, motor trimmed up. Two people aboard. Stock propeller.

Before I installed my T-Top, I was seeing 46.5-MPH at WOT (6,100-RPM) with 20 gallons of fuel and no bottom paint using a 17-pitch Powertech OFS. Last week with T-Top and about the same amount of fuel I saw 45.3-MPH with an 18-pitch Enertia at 6,000-RPM.

My 190 is powered by a Honda BF135.

We have seen GPS speeds up to 46 or a bit more with the Optimax 150 powered Nantucket 190, bimini up. MIRAGEplus 17 prop. With the REVOLUTION4 top speed drops to about 42 but the boat plans at lower speeds which is nice in rough water. MPG drops to just over 5.0 at about 24 MPH. I susually run about 24 MPH and getting about 5.5 MPG with the MIRAGEplus.

I now have both the factory propeller and a REVOLUTION4 17-inch. Will try to record the WOT speeds for both props. You will have to wait though as I have just put her on a ship to Perth ETA 27 July.

With a Honda 150 and a calm river with no wind two aboard my Nantucket did almost 50 when new but now after 3 years it seems to be happy at 45 with Vensura prop. No bimini. That feels pretty fast to me! That is fresh water. I wonder if it makes any difference.

Boats tend to run faster in saltwater. The water is slightly denser so the propeller thrust is improved, and the motor is at sea level, thus denser atmosphere, too, giving better power.

I have the Mirage 17P prop that came with the boat from BW. I should correct the max RPM to 5750 not 5950. I'm a litte surprised the Verado 150 doesn't push at 45 mph plus.

And also - with salt water their is less resistance from the water as there is less displacement. --- Jerry/Idaho

I had a 190 Nantucket with a Yamaha F150 (a powerful "150hp"). I hit 50 mph in Barnegat Bay on a cool April morning back in 2005. I had the bimini down, 3/4 full tank, used a Mercury 14x19 Vengeance prop, did not have trim tabs, and was by myself. Later in the summer my speed was more like 47mph, with a bow dodger up and the bimini down. See this link:

Managed 44.1 mph yesterday in the river. Got the RPMS up to about 5900.

Again fresh water is a tad slower than salt and what was the current doing?
