Cool Got the boat out for the season!! how much mph with 200 rpm?

well, i got to drop in yesterday for a quick blast with my new bblades on the boat.
first off it seems like she is working as last year i had a best of 60.2 mph and i would hit the rev limiter. put the prop on and ran her a few times and got 61.3 many times and 61.6 on one run with the wind slowest i saw was 60.9 on one run. problem is, i was only running 4600 rpm

so i need to send it back for a tweek. how much gain on a 496 mag with 200 or so rpm? running it full trim i just couldnt get the r's up, i was getting a great roost with no prop spin, but no more rpm.

over all the prop seemed to do its job. boat felt great out of the hole, seemed great mid range. i picked up about 2-3 mph at 3600 rpm (my main cruz rpm) and the boat seemed to handle very very well. seemed like it stayed in the water better, didnt porpous at all. very happy, and cant wait to get the 200 rpm back and see how she does.

thanks bblades.

BBlades help me pick up 250 RPM on my 525, 26P 4-blade. It was good for about 2 MPH on top.

yea, he did the 26p for my boat and it seems great. he just needs to touch it up for the 200 or so rpm loss of rpm. so if i can get 200 rpm back i might see another 1mph?
