Altitude and its impact in Helena, MT
The altitude at the ski site is about 4,000 feet above sea level. The elevation does raise a performance issue for boats. Skiers will get 45, but don’t expect much more. So, practice at speeds no faster than 45 mph.
Remember, generally speaking, an engine loses 3-4 percent of is rated horsepower for every 1,000 feet of altitude gained. (Jiffylubesocal.com). So, whatever the boat gets at sea level the reduction will be a minimum of 12% in performance. We will be using 2 Big Block Sangers to help with this challenge.
