Default Sailfish 218 Suzuki DF250AP

Hey all! It's finally here

Ran her today. Not the best of conditions but I tried to get some inshore where there was less swell Long Beach, CA (I'm in the pacific ocean).

4000 RPM had me at about ~35 MPH
5000 RPM had me at about ~45 MPH

Only got up to about 5800 RPM due to the conditions. I was at about ~48 MPH there with less than ideal trim.

On a super flat day I can see easily getting over 50mph.


Overall, I cruised back from Long Beach to Newport Beach through some long period ground swell at about 40MPH and 4400RPM. Pretty awesome I'll admit.


***Keep in mind rough estimates.. but I definitely hit 48 mph at 5800. Next time I got out with a buddy I'll have him record them.

I do! Pretty sweet. The whole gas thing confused me for a second. But then i realized the dealer hooked up the float sensor for the gas AND you can track gas based on usage as well.
