For those of us in the colder climates, when do you think you'll be on the water? I think we were on the water April 17th last year. It was damn cold, but worth it.

They were 16.5 x 33's @6100rpm's. Those engines are gone. I fired up the new mills yesterday and will be prop testing this weekend.

Just re-read your post. I do still have those props.
