Never really clocked top speed. Would get to 6000 rpm though. Unfortunately it will be a few weeks until I’m able to get her in. Still cold up here but getting closer. I’ll update when she goes in.

I just ordered a 4 blade prop in 12 pitch to help with planing. Run mine heavy as well. Hopefully I can get it in next month to test.

I carry an extra 6 gallon if I think I'll need it. It will run pretty much all day on one tank though. I'm looking for ideas for life vest storage though, a net under the seat maybe?

You have to move fast this time of year. Not uncommon for something to go under contract and then something comes up with the survey or funding. I had 4 boats under contract last spring. Bought one....

Cataumet on the cape, Grady dealer has a used one. Check their website. No generator though. I went through the same search last year. Ended up with a Marlin and am happy. Both are great boats.

My theory is that the 225 came out earlier so there has been more time and likely more motors to show it. But 200 225 and 250 all have shown the same symptoms.

Try pulling the fuse out and replacing. Even if it’s not blown. Mine did this after new batteries but for whatever reason it worked.

Post your year, motor and if possible throttle part number. Or a picture. Some have a friction screw and are real easy to adjust. My Yamaha does.

I did. Found 1 305 Express but it didn't run for the sea trial so I walked. Once I started looking at Marlins I was impressed. Pictures don't do it justice, get on one and see for yourself.

305 Express is 19.5 degrees at the transom, 30 amidships. Same hull as the 300 Marlin and 306 Bimini or now Canyon.
