Good morning Pat,

It is a common problem that some of us have,
In my case, even with a rebuilt propeller, new turbo and clean hull I was not able to exceed 2350 rpm.
Even thought my boat is heavier than recommended, I believe it is because of the oversize propeller, Kent on Kristy re pitched his and can now go 2800 rpm.

This summer I have not been able to
motor above 2200 rpm , but in neutral I can go right up to
3000 . I have not been able to dive on the prop to see if it
is fouled do to an injury. If I had a problem with fuel ,
turbo etc. would I be able to get up to 3000 in neutral but
not in gear ? Or does this indicate just a fouled
prop. Thanks,PatSM#123
