I thought I would check with a few of you and see what kind of speed and drive set-ups you have. The reason is: I have an Out of State customer with an 05 27 Daytona/Whipple 525. The boat was set up originally with a 2" short sportmaster and the engine was installed 1" high from the factory .
As soon is this boat starts to run over 85 mph, the prop starts to gradually blow out. It also blows out bad going on plane. At top speed with a 30 lab, the slip is over 13%!
I would love to hear about some factual set-ups from you guys, so my customer does not waste his money on drives, spacers, props, etc............................I think all of you will agree,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,first thing: The drive needs to come down!
