thats the kind of info I needed, thank you...I was going to see if the standard length would help, but apparantly it wont unless you have high speeds.

Merc 540ci Bulldogs with 8-71 BlowerShop Blowers and CMI Elbow-tops.
In the 3-4 seasons....1 gear set chewed and a snapped vetical shaft on the other.
He runs the boat loose and is very good with the sticks on exit and re-entry.
Thats all I can think of, It baffles me too.

Rob my paint alone should get you that extra couple of MPH
