    Hot Tamales and they’re Red Hot!!!

    about a month ago I swapped a prop out, and boy what a difference! 4400rpm got me 30 knots at 3/4 throttle, I still had room on the stick for more. Throttle back to 2700rpm with a touch of tab and getting 22 knots flat rise. This prop is a 173/4x21. I could tell by the wake it wasn’t beating the water like the 15x21. Super smooth and fast!! Best results I’ve ever got out of a 260hp thunderbolt. Hell, even the engine seemed it liked it more, three seconds out and dry with no tab. Can’t wait to wot, I think it’ll make 40mph. Goin our tomarrow, I’ll post results!

    Ok, today’s seas were at 2-4 and wot@4600 got me 35.6kts. That’s the best I’ve ever gotten from a single engine Bayliner cruiser with the 260hp. I’m happy with these results. Maybe some of this nonsense can be of use to someone out there in Baylinerville!

        Oh snap, the subject boat is a Bayliner 2452 XE with a 260hp thunderbolt v-8, paired with a bravo 2 I/O. My prior Bayliner was a 2550DE that had a 260hp Volvo/Penta v-8, paired with the Penta 260 I/O. That boat was a foot longer and a foot wider, so it’s performance was always somewhat lacking. I will review my profile page to correct.
