i have a 1988 21' bayliner capri. its goes about 10mph and rarly it will get up 20-25 mph. the engine seems to run good but the boat does not go very fast. It has a chevy 305 engine in it. the engine has a edlbrock intake a holley carb and a mallory distributor. Is there anything i can do to make the boat go fast because im pretty sure it suposse to. any comment would be helpfull.
