    A disturbing issue with my Yamaha F200i4

    I will give you one more glimmer of hope! On some models (not sure on exact models, though i had it on my F225), the dipstick assembly itself is starts to leak over time when tilted up. I had the same symptoms as you and the assembly was the culprit. If this is the case, you will know right...

    330 Express Bridge Outrigger Clearance Question

    If you have the horizontal clearance to do this, then go for it. Personally, faced with the same challenge, I would just replace the outrigger system - either by getting the carbon fiber retractable ones that fit the existing holders or going all out and replacing the whole system and going...

    330 Express Bridge Outrigger Clearance Question

    Not sure if you mean drop them horizontal, like for trolling or drop them back by releasing the pin in the tension rod. I'll tell you now dropping them back is tricky, they only fall back so much and then they naturally push outward, you would almost have to tie then together with a rope across...

    330 Express Bridge Outrigger Clearance Question

    I don't think your riggers are 28', as Lee doesn't make them in 28' . It's more than likely MX Series 25' poles on the MX series fold down holders. Google those models and see if that is what they look like. If so, the tip of the rigger in stowed position is 24' from the water line. As 2...

    Help with fuel consumption please

    Threw me off for a moment as well! Now that i look back i see the years of hull and motor and that could not be F250's. I STRONGLY second Skunboats thoughts on consumption and refueling options with OX66's on that run. You have 63 nm straight run to the start of the Mudhole, 22 nm to the...

    Help with fuel consumption please

    I happen to be very familiar with those waters and all points offshore from the narrows out (my living room window looks onto the Narrows :-). Where are you guys leaving from on the sound and where do you intend to go offshore?

    Help with fuel consumption please

    With 300 gallons, you will be fine. You should be achieving 1mpg at cruise with that boat and motors, even if you were getting less on the way out say .8 mpg, thats 90 gallons out +/- and lets say you get 1mpg coming back, that's 70 gallons making for 160 gallons running to and from. At 7 knot...

    bad bow steer after motor upgrade

    I'm going to agree and add that you can most certainly run a larger wheel - give the 16x18.5 WaterGrip series prop a try, I'm surprised you're only getting 6000 with those wheels - with the 16x17's on my 330 (I have 300 Zukes as well) i was getting 6250 trimmed all the way out with moderate load.

    Congrats! What size props did they give you? You can expect an optimal cruise around 27kn, achieving .9 - 1nm/G (depending on load) and WOT at 39-40kn.

    330 fuel burn

    Actually, I can’t even believe that’s right, even with wrong size props and they are definitely wrong. Are the motors trimmed all the way out at WOT a the stated 5000?

    330 fuel burn

    Prop size? You are WAY out of operating range for those motors. I believe you optimally need to be at 5600-6000 with those motors.

    I forgot the most important question - what are your RPMs at WOT?

    As a rule of thumb with the 330 and twin 300's, assume .85nm/G - 1.1nm/G depending on load.
