Hey Mainsail,

max is 3000 according to my manual. I think I'm ok on the prop. 6.2 knots is hull speed, which I hut at 3000 RPM.

I just got a call back from Vetus and the support guy could not find documentation on the temp that triggers the high temp alarm so he asked a tech there at vetus and was told 212 deg F! That's stinkin hot! Not much of a warning if that is true. I wonder if I damaged something with overheating. Head gasket? I can barely see smoke when running, not sure on color. My transom is extra sooty dark though, at the exhaust port.
