Hi all, I have a 2006 Sig 240 with 5.0 270 MPI & Volvo DP and the boat just feels sluggish coming up on plane. It has lots of bow rise and takes too long in my opinion to level out. The bottom is clean and rpm's seem in the normal range. I have tried using with and w/o trim tabs, etc. with no luck. Anybody have a similar issue?

Are you reaching correct WOT rpms?

Please don't take this the wrong way, and it's just my opinion, but you're just another boat owner with a marginally powered vessel. You will never regret having too much torque and horsepower, but will always regret not having enough. I learned this lesson quickly after my first boat purchase 14 years ago. I sold it after one year.

That motor is fine for that boat in my opinion. It just sounds over propped.

I have the same boat and motor setup and do not have any problems. What props do you have? I top out at 5k RPM's running about 42MPH via GPS. Have you changed the fuel filter lately? How old is your gas?

Hi guys, thanks for the replies. I am checking all that I can think of as the boat has not been run in 2 seasons. I am running the original factory 3-blade SS duo-prop set-up so I don't think that is the problem. Old gas could be however.

Hex: I bring up the prop issue because mine was overpropped when I bought it. THe dealer swapped out the props that came from the factory...

I have a 1996 24 Signature with the 5.0 and volvo dual prop . Runs top end at about 45 mph rb2rb2@gr5tgr5t 4400-4500 rpm's. Probably could use some more rpms but gets out of the hole OK ...I like the top end. Has a hard time planing out at Powell(high elevation) with a big load and fueled up.
