I think Russ was running at least 36 with his Mark 58 on a Vagabond, hate to mention it blew up shortly thereafter :doh:

Well Dan your plan might work.... because this green horn has used up all of his tricks in one week. Still a few more months to Google something. :unsure:

Dan, Jabe and all. I took your advice and went to a lower prop, 13 down to 11, holy cow what a difference! Thanks for the "prop 101crash course". At WOT My RPM's are at 5800 200 higher than normal operating range 5200-5600. I also raised the motor more. My cavitation plate is 3/8" higher than the bottom of the boat. I went up one more pin (3rd hole up, This is good Just for racing Dan) :goof:
with all this change I am 4-1/2 mph faster than when I left AH last week. Garim GPS today showed 34.5 MPH ! :biggrin:
Thanks again setting me and the Merc straight!


At 34.5 mph you just might have me beat!

But I have a plan.
