Hello, Thanks for stoping by.
I recently purchased my first boat (1977 Johnson 115HP). Today I took it for its first trip on the water. I was very pleased with how the boat performed, but being new to boats I was wondering what to expect from this engine in terms of speed.
I do not have the TAC working yet
I did not have GPS but the MPH gauge would show about 42MPH when plaining with trim at full throttle.
I am just wondering if that is about right, or should I expect more from this engine (indicating I need to do some more tuning?)
The engine: 115EL775
Boat: 1077 Ranger Fish and Play - 17 ft (tri hull I think - still a newbie)
