1977 2576 Camper - OMC 235 Cruising Speed? Max RPM?

Postby Rearadmiral » March 11th, 2015, 6:20 am

Hello All,

Hope someone can help, just finished restoring a 25' Carver Camper with OMC 235 (351W) and Stringer outdrive. I'm getting around 15-16 knots at around 3400 RPM. Does that sound about right? My question is, What should my max RPM/Speed be once i break the engine in? Is it ok to run these engines WOT? Also does anyone know if the stock propeller is good or should I consider a different pitch prop for higher top speed? Thanks!
