270 FV Performance Numbers
glenncal1 Member Posts: 17 ✭
Hello all- Going to be Seatrialing 2004 270 FV on Thursday. 350 mag with B3 drive. What are the target performance numbers I should be looking for? Top Speed (thinking ~35kts.)? Cruise speed and RPM? Max RPMs? Thanks.
On a lightly loaded day very calm water I've done 33mph max.
Typical cruise is around 3700 rpm at roughly 25mph. Max rpm is around 4600rpm for me.
This is with 2 adults and 1 child with water tank and gas filled.
If I have more people on the boat the numbers change dramatically.
I own a 270 with a mag 350 mpi and in my opinion it's way underpowered and doing it again I wouldn't have bought that package.
It's a great boat otherwise.
BTW welcome to the forum.
I'm ordering a set of 22p Hill Marine props tomorrow as the 20p's just make me think there is some potential there. Anyone think I should go 24p??
