73.4 GPS
« on: October 11, 2006, 05:52:55 AM »

LE-21 225 Pro XS 27 pitch tempest 73.4 mph at 5600 RPM

With the cooler weather and finally getting the Pro XS to loosen up a bit, I hit 73 plus the other day on the river. Half a tank of gas and all my normal gear.

What kind of numbers are the rest of you getting with your LEGENDS.

Good numbers Mike! I was looking through some old magazines last night and ran across the Bass ans Walleye Boat issue that had the test of your boat. They hit 78 spinning a 26p @ 5850 rpm in 47 degree air. This was a radar gun and not GPS so accuracy could be an issue. According to the article, they hit 74 @ 5500rpm which would coincide with the #'s you just hit. I'm just curious what might happen if you tried a 26p.

I haven't had the chance to really open it up lately...I did hit 70.4 mph with a little over 1/2 tank of gas and full livewells on Monday out at Black Bayou.

Duh, I have no idea why I wrote that ??? but you are right Bigmouth I will fix it. BTW the LEGEND handles like a dream at 70 plus, not the slightest chine walk, in fact I could take my hands off the wheel and drink my coffee ~c~ ~c~

You are so correct Mike...at 70 plus there is really no need to hold the steering wheel tight or even at all...just let it drive itself, sit back and enjoy the ride.  ;D

That really helps out when you forget to bring gloves on those cool mornings doesn't it!  :roll2:

Seriously folks I've watched this happen. I've never been in a boat where you could do this.  ~c~

you guys mess with your jackplate heigh at all?  I know for a bullet they like to be above the pad. Im sittin at 1inch above right now will prolly go up to 1.5.
For those reading that want to know how to measure your propshaft height.  Get a level put in on the pad of the boat, winch the boat down until the the pad is level.
Then remove the prop and use the trim till the propshaft is level.  Then tape a string on the pad and pull it till it touches the back of the pad, then measure the distance from the string to the propshaft.
