Oh Deere,

do you have a picture for me how you welded this wedge on the skeg?

Iīve also an single application with NXT1.
Itīs an 30 Activator with EU662SCi without this "new" lower.
If I ran WOT I feel a lot of torque moving the boat to right.
btw: looking also for the "right" prop.

Hopefully you can see from these pictures. The wedge is only about 5 " high, and goes from @ 3/8 " thick to 0 over in 2.5" or so. You may be able to come up with one that is more efficient though. I will see if I can get at the boat today for a better picture.

My idea is Mercury Racing CNC 5 blade 16 x 31 (18 rake),
but I couldīt find one for testing.

I tested some Maximus props

Here my results:


> 15 1/4" x 28 Maximus (lab) Rev. Limiter (5450) 82mls
> 15 1/4" x 32 Maximus (lab) Rev.Limiter 89 mls
> 15 5/8" x 31 Maximus (lab) Rev.Limiter 89 mls
> 15 1/4" x 34 Maximus (lab) 4600 83mls
