    Paint / theme is not my taste, but the performance is impressive. Didn't the 39TG go around 117mph with the same power?

    I am suprised with this 15% slip angle

    PBoat Mag stated they used a 39 P prop

    This does not add up
    (6000RPM/1.35 Ratio)x 39, divided by 1056 is 164
    so with a 15 Slip
    that would be a speed of 139,,,
    So the slip is not as high as 15 %, and actually closer to 12%
    to get this speed out of this boat,,,,,,,Maybe someone did not program the correct pitch in the gauge??
