Do you have tabs????? How are they in relation to hull when all the way up????
the hull looks ok i took a straight edge about 2 feet long and ran it down a few spots and it looked good. the boat has no stress cracks or anything to show its out of wack.
i have to admit its original plugs and wires 230 hrs old

as for tabs, they are 12" long, they sit about 1" from the very bottom and sit out just a tad in the upward possition. the boat however always twists towards the left i alway half to trim the starb side down or port side up when cruzing. when im WOT its fine. it does this with just me in the boat, no one on the other side, and any weight i have in the boat is all right in the middle or close.

You can get loaner props from BBlades, nothing lost but $25.00, and valuable information gained.

they do loaner props? if thats the case im going to contact them right befor spring to get on the list (the boat goes into winter storage this weekend)

but i will give that a shot in the spring. if the prop works well can you just keep it and pay with a card or what ever?

Might want to change your plugs and wires before next season as well. A good tune up will make a world of difference.
