    22SSX w/Twin Ellipticals - Approximate Top Speed?

    you should be in the low 30's with that set up. I've got the 2275 RCW with twin elips strakes / waveshield and 150 Pro XS and run 40. Maybe he wasn't using Trim properly, logs are dirty, wrong prop, etc.. My guess is the prop is wrong. Pitch is good at 15, but with a diameter of 11, that's...

    Looks like I'm upgrading

    I was part of first members of this forum back in 2011 and was a member before I even put money down on my 2011 2275 RCW. After the 6 years on the water, my better half found something she'd rather have.  Don't worry, its still a Benny,.  So we left the Detroit boat show today and we have 2...

    scratches on toons

    I got this from our forum many years ago.  I thought it was a great idea but never got around to adding to my existing cover.  Would still love to do this to keep the faux teak clean. Todd

    Son of a @#$%^&

    Thank you all for the advice.  Very good things to try for sure.  I will look at it closely this weekend. His one buddy was setting in the boat and the other kid was in the water and went to open the door to get a pop and the kid on the boat kicked the gate shut and that's how it popped out...
