Hello MIles,

So you are saying, at sea (not at tied to the dock) you can now go 2800 rpm???
And the problem was just a fuel delivery issue?
That's a great news!!!
Congratulations, great help for all of us!
Sincerely, Alexandre

Thanks to everyone for your concern and advice.
Yesterday the mechanic

replaced the racor and the fuel lines and this fixed the
problem. I have my

boat back after several months of anguish. Now the problem
is to find out

why fuel lines the are sitting under 160 gallons of fuel
should have

negative pressure-maybe a clog in the bottom of the fuel
tank or the copper

line to the racor? This is not difficult to find and fix
and in the

meantime the boat runs up smoothly to 2800 all the time.
