I have a 1995, 40 HP Mercury that I have a couple of questions about 1. It turns 5100 RPM at full throttle and runs 26 MPH with the boat fully loaded is this about average or do I need to change prop? 2. I have had the carps cleaned, new plugs, new fuel filter but it is still a pain to start on the first start of the day. If I sit for over a hour then back to hard to start. But once started runs like a champ. Any ideas on how to make start easier?
