Since it was a sea trial and the engines are not broken in, we only wanted to touch 6000 rpm for just a min or 2.

6000rpm-63 mph small amount of engine trim. burning about 58 gph

still had 200rpm to go.

Also the head wind was a solid 15mph

How does it pull? A solid yank or are there flat spots in the acceleration curve??

That's really good. The f350 boats run about that.

That is good.
I was getting 65 mph, light but burning 64 gph on a 31t.
The df 350s would be my choice of power for a cape horn as of now.

Hm I was expecting a bit lighter, I am almost certain my next boat will be a Steiger 31 I bet it would run good with the df350’s

Probably so. The 350's have some reports showing 5 to 6 mph faster than 300 zukes.

Good performance gains.

Is that the weight of zukes with full oil and the Yamaha without?
