At the end the day, get a full engine survey with oil analysis. That is paramount.

I have this boat with the TAMD63p Engines. Great boat, great engines. Make sure you are making at minimum 2800rpm WOT, best to be 2850 or so to not overload engines. Expect cruise speed to be 16-18 knots (closer to 16) depending on wind/current. Install Boost and EGT gauges if you get the 63Ps so you can monitor load. You will most likely have to take pitch out of props. I had to pitch down one inch when I bought it because it was barely making rpm the way Carver props them. By the time you load up fuel, water and put your gear on it you are over propped.
