    Sounds like you've done lots of testing, didn't realize you have a hydraulic jackplate and running the I6 Verado.

    Going to 1/2" larger diameter did you come up on the jackplate any? How much lower were the rpm's?

    What 4-blade exactly? Diameter makes a difference as well, did the boat run better as there was less hydrodynamic drag?

    My opinion based on what you posted I'd try a 4-blade prop that'll have more blade surface area and therefore more natural lift, as you may have been loosing some bite in the choppy water.

    No doubt the P2 is a rocket with 3.0L 2-stroke, 4.6L 4-stroke, 3.4L 2-stroke or 4.2L 4-stroke as it has such a great torque to weight ratio, the Classic I imagine isn't far behind.

    One benefit in...

    Torque and hp can't peak at the same rpm though, I'm guessing torque peaked around 4500 rpm given the fact the hp peaked around 6000rpm and other 3.0L graphs I've seen posted. Which would mean torque...

    The only time HP and torque are ever equal at the same rpm is 5252, torque will always peak at a lower rpm than hp.

    I never realized the 10% rule was started in the 80s because Yamaha rated their...

    I don't see it listed in your signature, are you running the same prop as before? The stiffer gearing will spin up easier/faster. You'd need to step up 1 pitch to offset as the limiter is 200rpm...

    Agreed you're over revving initially. Another option is to run the exhaust ring being it's a small hub prop, I found that with it and no plugs was the best combo for me though I have the regular 150...

    They're all over 20' therefore the coast guard doesn't rate them, the below is from the manufacturer's website.

    I agree even though I prefer a 4-stroke over a 2-stroke, if limited to 150hp the 2.8L DOHC Yamaha and 3.0L SOHC Mercury both make ~50ftlbs less than the 2.7L G2. You'll appreciate that in the summer...

    6200 is actually the redline for the ProXS V8s, you might try a 22" pitch Tempest if bored as it has better lift characteristics than the Fury and might allow a heavier hull to perform better. If...

    The 200hp V8 is offered with a 1.85 geared lower unit like the V6 or 1.75 torque master which I assume you have the latter based on the numbers you provided, is that right?

    Running the numbers they provided on a 24" Fury 4 (the smallest pitch available) I come up with ~5% slip, at that low of slip you could run upper 60s with yours if the outboard will push it that fast.

    Agreed, that's impressive! If you have the limiter raised that high I assume the variable cam timing goes full retard(no pun intended) does that mean you trade some low end torque for the high rpm...

    Thank you for your contribution, so at what point does weight make a difference? Why does Allison have hulls that say 440lb max or no 3.0L?
