That bridge is much higher in Sarasota now, and it has been no wake for the 10 years that I've lived there.

That's what I thought. Didn't think they changed it since I was there last August.

Thanks,

I think if I ran my back tanks out, put the 3 blade 18" dia props on trim all the way up, the big dia will give me higher tip speed and the less blades will let me blow the prop out easier to get the rpm up with out the boat launching like a rocket, I think I need to set my sights higher, like the toll bridge.
