    Honestly, if you donít have a 23 tempest id be getting one, if you have a merc. Maybe try some trim extensions. You probably wonít see past 57 with a full load on that boat, even with a tempest and plate. Maybe lighten some gear if you can. For what you have, 54 isnít too out of the norm

    If your prop has some dings it might just need some work done.

    When was the last time you replaced the spark plugs and were they gapped properly?

    Have you ever serviced the fuel rails and injectors?

    Have the fuel lines ever been replaced?
