Wayne, throttle back???
Many years ago I ran to the Bacardi in 5-7s and made a sog of 25 knots in a Mako 255 with twin 140 Evinrudes. If it were not for the Northstar loran (my favorite!) I'd have had to throttle back due to needing to run compass course and D.R.. With the loran I was able to cut between the "knuckles" and haul a**. Unfortunately, the guy I wass supposed to meet (Bert31) headed in before I passed the 15 fathom mark. I think I passed them in the dark. When we got to Frank and Dicks, Dick informed me, my friends were sitting at home. What a long day that was
As for that Parker? I fish one out of Montauk and I think it is a great boat. I like the construction of the hull and the ride is quite good. Nothing fancy (thank God) but it gets the job done!!
P.S. are toy running trim tabs on that thing?
With one engine it'll really help to achieve level flight
