Hi everyone,
I posted a message a while back about my 55hp Chrysler not having acceleration. I thought I had fixed that problem, but when I loaded the boat with my wife and 4 kids (1 is not mine- a bigger kid)
Total weight probably 900 lbs
The boat really bogged down-
it is an open front tri hull
Would this be normal for a 55 hp motor?
Note: the motor does have a "planing fin" on it
Please let me know
