    Vessel View Mobile

    I had same faults when I installed vessel view mobile. I have the 5.0mpi. I reached out to mercruiser because these faults would appear every time I used the app, but boat was running fine. In my case the faults were showing because my motor wasnt actually equipped with these features. They advised to block the codes since they aren't relevant to me.

    Sunesta 236 w 5.0 UNDER POWERED?

    Better jump on that assuming price is right. Fantastic choice.

    Yes they are. Great boat!

    Sunesta 236 w 5.0 UNDER POWERED?

    I understand. I would have bought a 220 with the 350 had one been available. But I couldn't find one. Maybe one day when it's time to repower.

    My 220ssi has a 5.0mpi with bravo 3. Has never felt underpowered. I wouldn't say no to a 350, but 5.0 is plenty for the 220.

    4/3 blade bravo props

    To update this. The 24p 3x4 props are perfect. WOT rpms now at 4950 at 50mph. Get out of the hole like a rocket. Very please. The previous 26p props worked ok, but probably shouldn't have been on this boat from factory.

    4/3 blade bravo props

    I have some 3x4 24ps on loan from my dealer to try out this weekend. If I like them I'm buying the ones pictured above. I'm not trading in my 26s if I can buy some 24s for $400.

    Rpms are the same from 3/4 to full throttle

    I'm sure they are. Not paying $1000 for props right now though.

    4/3 blade bravo props

    How long should I allow my boat to reach it's true WOT RPM? A minute or 2, a mile? Previously when I was out the boat was only reaching 4300rpm, with a lot of throttle left. Should I be giving it longer time or distance to reach it's true wot? I just want to make sure my top speed and rpms are accurate before I go changing props.

    I found these on craigslist for $400. Props are dirty but straight. Obviously I wouldn't be able to try them out before buying.

    The blades I'm looking at are mercruiser. I should have mentioned that.

    So regardless of the rear blade being a 4, I should still expect the same increase in rpms even if it was a 3 blade.

    Most efficient rpm...

    Totally get that. OP was asking for his most efficient cruising speed. I'm just saying there are too many variables to hand calculate that. And a fuel flow meter (cheap) or vessel view is likely the only way he'll know for his specific boat. For example, you always hear, or at least I do that most boats are most efficient at 3krpms. My vessel view not only told me that was incorrect, but I also found out that my dash gauge is not accurate at all.

    Most efficient rpm...

    True to some degree but a vessel view can tell you your specific mileage range or gph at a specific speed or RPM. So the advantage is significant. Hand calculating can give your averages but it can't tell you specifics. And it cannot tell you your most efficient RPM for cruising.
