What? Well, this past weekend while out on the boat, Jimmy was driving and man she was running smooth. Butta smooth, and we both said in unison, man she likes this RPM. And it dawned on me. A STORY! Hey its getting cold and story ideas are gold. And we have never touched on this subject. Does your boat have a sweet spot? Mine is around 1800 – 2200 RPM. She just runs smooth, and rides at a nice clip.
I wonder if one of the engineers out there, knows why? Is it the engine size? Some engine innards? Prop? Maybe those nice Kocian Gauges? Here is An older video of WECATCHEM going full throttle. The speed is not all that different. Faster, but a lot of forced feel. She runs smooth, but her sweet spot is the 2K mark,
