OK......I have been fishin for as long as i can remember but I am now a boat owner for the first time and I have questions. I bought a 1988 Hurricane Deck Boat equipped with a Force 125hp outboard. When I forst got the boat i knew it had engine issues and that was figured into the purchase price. I took it to the shop and they replaced 2 ignition coils and 2 CD modules. The motor does run better but i dont feel like I am getting the speed that i should out of it. It is running about 4200 rpm at full throttle which i have been told is about right (thats IF the tach is correct). My top speed at this time with only myself and my wife on board is 23 - 25 mph and this is measured by my gps. And the boat doesnt seem to be getting completely up on plane loike I think it should. I had it out this weekend and had my stepson and a friend on board with us (4 people total) and it would hardly get us through the water. 17 - 18 mph. I need advice...........have already gotten the advice to ditch the Force motor but that isnt financially feasable at this time. All help appreciated.
