Wide Open Throttle

When was the last time you had your boat at WOT.

There are two WOT 's on a boat. There is the Maximum governed throttle on the engine. This is how fast the governor will allow the motor to operate and not damage the engine.

The other is based on things like prop, weight and how clean the bottom is.

The question is.

For how long and how often should you operate the engine at WOT.
