lastly, anyone know what the approximate cruise speed and RPM's are on this
boat....


With the correct props cruising RPMs should be in the range of 3200 to
3400 assuming 4400 to 4800 at WOT (Wide Open Throttle).

Fuel burn will be in the range of 40 to 50 gallons per hour at
cruising RPMs.

Speed is harder to predict but 18 to 20 kts seems reasonable. A boat
that size and weight should really have diesels.
