Re: Atomic 4 Throttle

Tack ?

I get 4 knots at 1000+ RPM and make pretty much max speed at about 1400 RPM of 5.5 knots

I have NEMA 2000 fuel flow and the fuel burn goes form .5 GPH at 1000+ to 1 GPH at 5.5 knots

The boat will go faster BUT the stern just sinks and it uses fuel like crazy at 6.2 knots

All of this is with a 12 X 7 two blade flex-o-fold

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
