    The propeller size seems to be my biggest issue. When I put the 30's on it is really fast on 2 for an idle.

    sometimes it not the wake but its traffic congestion and slow cruisers that have me run on one motor
    Kept the Bullet and the condo and joined the cig 20 restoration club.

    I was stopped by the WI DNR last summer on the St. Croix River when I was idling 5 MPH on both engines. The guy told me to shut one engine down. Apparently no-wake doesn't mean you're not making a wake because I wasn't. To the DNR, it means you're going as slow as physically possible while maintaining steerage.

    I run on one because of noise restrictions in Mi. My boat isnt even loud but still gets pulled over when I run both in a no wake.
