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.

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires. Blew one out on the way to Zumbro Falls this weekend    Pretty soon everything on this camper will be brand new! 
    •   Well I never!!!    Caught one that nice!
    •   Del be fightin' with himself again. He likes that. 
    • I now boys fight Nice!!
    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
    • The replacements most likely have tuning components built in.  And it isn't too big a deal anyway if you have decent signal strength.
    •     What are ya, a parrot? Someone needs to tune you...with 220 volts of inductance. *ZZZZZT*
