    That's actually true. Proper break in requires heat and a heavy load with no trim for the first couple of hours will build heat.

    I think that you both can fish with him cause we know that 250 can carry the load and the front deck on this thing is huge.

    I think we should get some time on the motor and the seat and then we can do some set up tuning and prop testing. The current air quality is poor for hot rodding so when we get some cooler air we will find out what this beast is going to do. Corporations internationally have settled on adoption of International Standards Organization (ISO) engine test standards to rate engine power. Horsepower values are obtained from a dynamometer at sea level, 30% relative humidity, at 77 degrees f. As humidity and air temp rise HP drops as much as 14% only compounded by high pitch props and heavy fishing loads. Ever noticed how much better the runs when it's cold?
