  1. I just bought a 2002 260 SSI with the 8.1L Volvo (207 hours). The previous owner just had the bottom painted and said the boat would cruise @ 50mph. I can't get it over 42 mph on smooth water. The RPM @ WOT is only 3800. It also takes 8-10 seconds to get on plane. I called the boat shop at our marina and he said its so slow because of the antifouling paint on the bottom. Digging deeper I found that when this boat was new it's top speed was 57mph @ 4500 rpm. Is the repair shop telling me the truth? He said I could get another 5mph with new props ($1500 for 2). Where do I go from here?
