Yamaha 60hp 4stroke



If my motor runs at 6000rpm when i have it to the floor and trimmed out is that to much?

In the Yamaha owners manual I have for the 75 to 90hp range the full throttle operating range is listed 5,000 to 6,000 rpm .

Under propeller selection in the same manual it states " At full throttle and under a maximum load , the engines RPM should be in the upper half of the full throttle operating range as listed in the spec's .

That would be 5500 to 6000 RPM for a 75 to 90 HP four stroke . According to Yamaha's web page the specs are the same for your outboard .

I have a Yamaha F60. The full throttle for this motor is 5000-6000rpm. The motor produces 60HP at 5500RPM. You want to select a prop that gets you to at least 5500 rpm, but not more than 6000.

If you have your boat fully equipped (anchor, batteries, tackle, gas, etc.) and you are getting to 6000rpm, you might consider moving up a pitch in prop. This should lower the rpm by a few hundred. You'll probably get better overall performance.

When I first tested my boat, I didn't have my bow mount, second battery, anchor, fishing gear, etc. At that time I could also hit 6000 trimmed out. But by the time I added all the gear, a full tank of gas, etc. the rpm lowered to about 5600 trimmed out. I'll glad I stuck with the original prop.

      If your company is very large and has many employees, you will have to hire a professional company that is specifically dedicated to that, since a single professional will not be able to do everything, in the google search bar you can find many, but if someone here can recommend you one that has used it as much as possible is much better, good luck to your company and to you!

      BW is not a designated Trout lake. The limit is the same as state which I think is 5 bows. Don't think there is a size limit either since they don't breed.

      Rotes, Hi, I just joined this forum and these corner caps are just what I have been looking for. Is it possible at this late date to get a set of these made for my Lund? The only difference I can see is the color of the material. Would you be willing to make a set for me? Thanks, [email protected]

      Any move requires time and effort, but if you turn to a moving company for help, then some of the problems will disappear immediately. Firstly, the guys from the moving services always take care of the client's property, pack and carefully transfer your things to the car. Secondly, when moving with movers, you do not have to worry about the road, they choose the fastest and safest way, as they have extensive experience in transportation.

      Anybody know how much the lake temps have dropped?   Are people have the most success with minnows vs crawlers when fishing with live bait lately, or are crawlers still working?

      Snuck out last night, water Temps down to 54-56, last Thurs mid 60s. Fish were finicky. Leaves are changing quickly here, lots falling. Two weeks should be a lot better in the woods

      I agree with the previous comment, you could save a lot of money by making your website first .. its design .. and then if you want to move .. but if you want, you can immediately ..-) look here: https://digitalsuits.co/hire-developers/hire-shopify-developers/

      I think that even at the initial stage, you need to consult with specialists who have been working in this field for a long time .. and then you will really get the result .. otherwise you can spend a lot of time and in the end you will have to redo everything .. for example, look here: https://www.softformance.com/services/software-consulting-company/
