Does this mean that on sea trial the engines did not get up to full RPM? There are many reasons this could have been the case, and wrong size props are pretty far down the list. A dirty bottom could have caused not getting full RPM and would be first on my list.

I would not discount an otherwise good boat over this questionable report. If everything else looks good get your own survey before purchase. Check what size props are installed against what should be there. If there's no on here with a twin Volvo 350/390 ask at the Mainship Yahoo site or search the archives.

Volvo's are good engines, at 1800hrs has lots of life left. FL to ME should be no problem if everything checks out, nice trip.
