Tank was drained and disposed
of. High test was because boat doesn't get used very much.

I'll ask mechanic if he's done that....my friend's husband suggested same thing.

Guess that rules out a bad sensor then - good to know!
Consensus seems to be fuel issue so far....

So did you get your problem fix? I have a 2001 2700scr that's doing pretty much the same as yours. Getting 4200 rpm out of it but it's so hard to get her on plane, just two ppl in the boat and full gas half water or more and she takes forever to plane. Is there's much current and wind/waves sometimes she didn't plane at all.
Same as yours it has a single 7.4, bravo three, 500 hrs. Getting fed up with this so much that I'm planning on getting rid of it but at the same time I know I should be fixed le and the boat should have enough power to get up and go

Is this a new problem? When did it last run good? Perform a compression test on the engine.

Rick, call the guys at Hill Marine. They have a 4 blade prop set up for the Bravo III that makes a HUGE difference in the performance.

I have a buddy with a 2800 and the 7.4L. He would have to go down into the cabin and lay on the forward V berth while his wife drove the boat out of the hole. He would also have to run at a very high RPM to keep it on plane. The 4 blade props fixed both these conditions.

Started noticing it really last year, we moved the boat where there is more current and bigger waves and that's when it started getting really noticeable. I'll check compression a soon as I get back home next week

I actually ordered a pair of four by 4 from them but my original pros were 20p and he makes 20p or 18... Got 18p but now I received to hight at cruising spores. I need to call him to see if I can't swap em out for something that would work better

I'm quite certain they will work with you to get the right pitch.
