Re: Boat thrust calculator?

is this the hunter 295 it should have a 18 HP 2gm20 in it and is way more power then you need for a 30 foot boat. if it is a 2gm20 then rebuilt it if it needs. you will be money ahead over a repower and ahead on resale also. if you do re power then a 29.5' boat 15 to 20 HP it is that simple. don't over think it.
Why does the stock motor not get to hull speed. different prop, engine is lacking, dirty bottom. what speed are you getting?
