Question Good Bad Normal

The other day I was pulling my 24' boat and noticed my EGT in the high 800-900 about 60-65 mph. Trailer is about 1200 lbs boat is close to 5000 full of fuel and water. I was running Innovative tow tune. Does this sound about right? For some reason I remember being lower

Just wanna make sure I don't cause problems I don't wanna fix

Thanks for the heads up Rual, I figured they were about normal but for some reason I thought they used to lower.
