Top Secret (LOL...). Seriously, just give Matt a call. He's MUUUUUCH better at explaining prop than I am.

727-531-2255 - Throttle-up.

P.S. "What" they are is not the most interesting part. When he shared "what he did" to the props, is what was most interesting.

We're running the "updated" version at Ft. Myers. Hopefully, it will plane even better and pick-up another MPH. We'll see....

P.S. Look at the shine on all the Cigs. I think it's safe to say that the Cigarette Crew kept all of our boats clean and waxed up!

Thanks, guys!!!!

Ok... Here's the pics!

FYI - we are still all over the rev limiters, to the point there's no "p" in beep". It's just one solid beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Thanks again.... you guys are amazing!

Actually, I didn't want to say too much w/ out knowing the result, but it was in flat water on Clear Lake! I'm bettin' two things:

1) Faster in the pure salt (Florida)
2) Faster in a chop

But, we'll wait to see how it actually runs before I start running off at the mouth!!

Oh, and yes.... It is pulled by a Ford of course!

One more thing.... Funny quick story -- after putting the props on I ran the boat several times up and down the lake all across the RPM range seeing how the boat handled b4 dropping the throttles. I made two passes at WOT and then back to the dock. As I was pulling back out the coasties were sittin in the lake. I guess someone didn't like us buzzing it on a Sunday! LOL.... They were cool and just smiled and waved as we went by at 50 MPH!

I will say this.... It's looking like it's going to be right in line w/ my last boat and be one of the fastest 39 600 TG's out there!

Not bad for the first hour on the boat:
All right guys... Here it is... If I crack 100 MPH my insurance nearly doubles -- and to run 102 MPH, that's a lot of extra $$$$ vs. running 120 in a different boat, for the same insurance price.

Matt and Julie (Throttle-Up) are DYING to put a bigger set of wheels on her and take it to the Kilo Shootout, but, I'm not doing it.

Doing the math, it's safe to say the boat "will" run 102. However, at 98/99 MPH, it jumps on plane like a rock star and is an "all around" well propped poker run beast!!!

Here's the 98/99 MPH Pic.
