I have a 2001 80HP Yamaha mounted on a 16' Aluminum LUND. I had a motor "problem" that required new wires installed. Keeping in mind that I bought this boat in May 2013, it is my first boat, I am sure it went faster pre-fire July 6, than it is now post fire September 10. The Tech that repaired it assures me that the max speed of this engine is 38 MPH but I am sure I had it over 40 MPH Canada Day Weekend on the Rideau.

Just looking for some experienced advice on whether or not I should expect any more out of this motor or is it fine the way it is and maybe it was just a fluke that I had it faster before the repair.

Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Not sure about wiring, u don't really state which wires burnt, plug ????, did u by any chance change the prop, way I understand it, faster out of the hole the slower the overall speed

Much like some of the other fellas, I too can offer you a point of reference.

My 16.5 Legend with a 50 HP EFI Merc will do 33 MPH.

Items replaced:
1 - Wire harness
1 - Intake
1 - Intake Gasket
4 - O Ring
1 - Terminal Cover
8 - O Rings
4 - spark plugs

I returned the boat for a few days last week. They "sync'd" the carb. No change in props.

If you replace intake gasket,make sure it's not split or got a kink in it...had a snowmachine once ok on low end,but the upper end would suck air slow right down...just a thought :?

Don't forget the other factors that can significantly affect boat speed; wind, current, trim, # of people on board, level of gas etc.

I have a 150 Yamaha 4-stroke on an Alumacraft 185 Tournament Pro. Me and 1/4 tank of gas, 52mph. Me, a partner, full tank of gas 46-47mph. Up river on the French costs me 2mph roughly. You may have very well hit 40+mph a few years ago, and just have not been able to duplicate the same conditions since.

My old 17' Sylvan with a 90 Honda topped at about 40mph, 38mph with another guy on board.
