Sure, but this is a static condition. How likely is it to have a situation in boating where you have a substantial amount of torque but no movement in the prop?

Hmmm . . . torque is the combination of force applied to a lever. The torque and the speed at which the torque moves equates to power. Maybe we are saying the same thing but I'm not seeing it.

I agree that both the F250 and VF250 SHO are strong 250s. I don't agree that the F300 is a weak 300. 296hp is darn close. And I don't agree that the VF250 is equal to the F300. The difference in fuel...

You are right, Ken. Those sacrificial anodes on the trim rams would be much closer to the rear pivot point if the drive was all the way down. In addition, as you suggested, there would be visible...

Both are very close to the 126hp "limit" (115hp + 10%) but the Merc will be torquier (sp?) due to the extra displacement.

Sure, I will read the thread, but CARB quotes the same numbers for VF250LA and VF250XA.

2.4L per blower rev. Amount per engine rev is dependent on pulley size. A bigger pulley on the blower means lower boost pressure.
