I'm gonna move mine into 2nd hole as well . I think hole 1 makes it sit too low in water creating more drag. Ur specs are inline with others that are in hole 2. What rpm do u pull with light load 1 or 2 ppl and what do u pull loaded when ur hitting mid to upper 30's?Looks like ur in 2nd hole from top
Gotcha. My dealer is gonna move the motor up a hole for 30 min labor. I think that will put me where I need to be. Thx manLoaded its 5500 rpm at 36-38mph light load is 5900-6000 rpm 40-41mph. The last few times out it seemed on the lower side of the mph for each load but I think I need to clean the growth off my toons. I leave it in the water for the season.
