    I have a 2006 24SSV. From our little surf experience we found it appears big boats need big weight. Kind of makes sense actually. 1150 and all passengers on the surf side with 750 in the offside...

    Draining heater hose on an 8.1

    I've gone through the boat and drained everything but am not sure where the heater hose is. Does anyone have a picture or diagram so I can verify that I have that emptied. Thanks

    Agreed! I plan on maintaining/using this rig for the next 20 years. Only 140 hrs. on it so far.

    My 8.1 has a pretty noticable lope and a supercharger adds its own wrinkle so I could see where some issues could arise.

    That deep ratio on the new, heavy boats makes a lot of sense. If they run a...

    Buyers seem to shy away from the 8.1 because they're worried about fuel consumption but are buying the 450hp 6.2 and 550 hp supercharged 6.2 in the newer big boats. It takes a certain amount of fuel...

    It is the Supra cruise. Are you talking about the connections at the controls or the motor?

    The 1273 made the holeshot awesome and ran 46.5 mph on gps at 5000 rpm with an 800 lb. load. Pretty close to what I wanted, only 200 rpm short of ideal. Will probably run it until next Spring and...

    I like to longline about 42 and on our inaugural run last week it went 50mph very smoothly. The 1273 is installed so tomorrow is test day and we'll see how the combo works.

    Glad to hear the 1433 is working well for you. The 1273 is very similar to the 1433 just larger diameter with more cup. It isn't on the flowcharts for either site because those are created for the...

  13. Supra 24V - 8.1/496 prop selection for Surfin', Wakin', Slalomin', AND Footin'

    Just picked up a 2006 SS 24V with Indmar 8.1. The stock ACME 497 13x17.5 is not impressive out of the hole and only turns 4800 rpm at 50 mph with an 800lb load. Thought the 8.1 could run better so...
