    Interesting, you have a 3288 with 351 Windsors? I only thought the 38xxs were offered with a gas v8. It must get up and go.

      I picked it up little over year ago have done much to it but have been disappointed in the performance I don't have a speedometer on it but if I were to estimate I would say top and he's probably 24 mile an hour

        That is a lot better than the diesel powered ones. What rpm are you running at that speed?

        Packing size is 1/4 inch.

          thank you for that information about the stuffing size where were you able to locate that?

          I was runningat 3800 to 4000 RPM at that speed I believe

            Sometime if you use google search it works better than the search engine on the site.

            Is 4000 rpm the maximum rpm you are able to get, with a clean bottom and both engines tuned and running properly?

              I have been told that I should get somewhere between 4200 and 4400rpm but I am questioning my tax and how accurate they are one says 3800 while the other said I believe 4000

                That's not horrible. These boats don't really plane (I tend to get disagreement on that issue) but check with a GPS. When you test have a light load and make sure your tabs are getting down all the way. I hit 28MPH once and I have the gas 305's. Regardless the boat is not designed to go fast, but arrive at a stately more gentlemanly pace

                My boat is happiest at around 8-10.

                  Yes I agree with Iceclimber, they are not really a true planning hull.

                  A 351 in a marine application should have a max of around 4800rpm, so I think you are a little bit overpropped.
