The sweet spot rpm setting for any particular engine installation is going to vary depending on the rest of the factors involved, i.e., displacement, prop size/pitch, etc.

Also a tour of Mack Boring facility and as I recall they now have an Indian motorcycle dealership as well. Also you can get to get a chance to buy parts directly at their counter at prices more realistic(long story) then from your local marina...

2450 I mentioned was based on the curves data from the manual...

Fair enough, but as the saying goes -- YMMV. The data provided in manufacturer's literature are probably based on bench testing on a dynomometer. Actual application variables are going to make those numbers more of a general guideline than steadfast rules.

Exactly and thus I've gone thru 3 prop reconfiguations based on, as you called it, "general guidelines"...

There is another 'Engine Speed' that is not mentioned..but some won't really care..is the 'Max No-Load' speed. However, a good engine(separate from a boat) surveyor will/should note it on his report..
