I just got back from bringing my boat from SXM to Panama
. I wanted to give some feedback on the upgraded 30hp engines....they are great. I really didnt want the upgraded engines but had to purchase
them in order to get this boat. I am now so glad that I have them. My Mahe motors at 10 knots at 3000 RPM
in flat water
and easily goes 8-9 knots in some chop at about 2600 rpms with these engines. Nice to know I have some power when/if I ever need it to get me out of danger
. My local FP dealer was on the boat during the trip and he says he will HIGHLY recommend the bigger engines now that he has used them himself.
May not be for everyone but just wanted to pass along my experience since when I queried for information about the bigger engines, no one seemed to have much experience with them.
On to California
