there's alot to answer that one....water conditions....winds...tides..load of the boat..ie water..fuel...etc........all things equal....drop the tabs...lower the drives.....hit the throttle......should plane within 6-15 seconds....this is really almost impossible to answer....

Clint,

My '04 2400 SC3 with the 350 Mag (300 HP), Bravo 3 drive all in, 6 adults, 3/4 tank of fuel, no tabs, two or three small coolers with drinks, will get on plane in about 7-10 seconds.

I don't go to WOT, closer to 2/3 or 3/4 and let it spool up. Soon as I see the bow start to drop I throttle back and it levels off cleanly at about 2600/2700 RPM.

Dan
