Confused !

Recommended Posts

So we took the boat out yesterday.  2001 260 sig with 5.7 bravo 2 ,  planned like normal  running good other than ran the wot  up to 5100  and has never gone over 4600 in the three years I have owned her . Same prop no changes to anything mechanical??   When we got to the beach I got in the water to check prop for problems   Ie.. chunks missing cracks ,  and put it in gear and tryed to turn it to check for slipping found nothing abnormal.  Any ideas?  Other than the jokesters saying try sea foam      ( today is a great day to be on a boat )

Hard to say, could be many things including amount of trim, water and air conditions.  Keep a eye on it if you think there are problems, but enjoy it all the same

Possibilities.....

you lost a lot of weight.  Your trim was high.  Prop bearing is going bad.  Tach is off.
