In another thread, PacBlue stated as follows: "......Chopping throttles - love to whenever I can, especially coming back to harbor in glassy seas, late evening, it's just a personal thing! I always test new boats by chopping throttles at WOT, sea conditions allowing, to see how she glides and at what kind of attitude. Gives me some insight into hull design and efficiency..........." So, I am wondering. My hero and mentor once said to me that chopping the throttles is not a good idea because the trubo is spinning at a high RPM and the engine slows and the oil flow to the trubo slows and MAY starve the trubo bearings for oil because the turbo doesn't slow at the same rate as the engine RPM. Any truth to that ? I used to like to chop them as well, which brought on the conversation about it which made me change my ways.
