Wires and plugs replaced, top end was 3700 RPM's and 33 mph on the GPS. Flat lake and no wind to speak of.

In a few weeks the boat will be out of the water and I will check the props and post another update. Thanks for the help and suggestions.

When they pull it out for the winter I am going to have to check them out, get more information and then I 'll be back. The marina is replacing the plugs, wires and distributors this week. We'll see what that does. I just purchased her in October of last year. I called the previous owner but all he ...

The engines and carbs were rebuilt ~ 450 hours ago. The oil pressure is good. As far as voltage, carbs, wires and the pressure in the cylinders go I will have to ask the marina to check that for me.
The exhaust was white on startup.

Thanks

RPM'S

The RPM's in neutral are ~ 750. I put on a snorkel and there is no buildup around the props. I will check the trim tabs next weekend (did not think of that) . The mechanic is suggesting carb rebuilding, not being a mechanic I just thought it odd both engines at full throttle are still the same. I th...

RPM question 1972 Trojan

I purchased a 1972 30' Searaider last year and we just finished our vacation up in Georgian Bay. Lots of fun and mostly sunny days. During the trip the most I could get out of the Twin 318's was about 3100 RPM's. In smooth water the top end was about 25 mph and in rough water about 18 mph at top end...

Refinishing a Teak deck, 1972 SeaRaider

I have just purchased a 1972 Trojan SeaRaider 30'. The back deck has been covered for a number of years with carpeting. Under the carpet the wood is teak with black lines. The colour has faded and I would like to redo it this winter and return the wood to the original "look". Any suggestions on how ...
