I just ran those numbers on Marc's prop slip calculator ( http://www.go-fast.com/Prop_Slip_Calculator.htm )and the numbers work, with a prop slip of 15 % gets us around 100 at 5800-5900 RPM.

If I get a second I will dig through my posts I am sure we had a discussion about this at one time or another with Kenny and another owner of this green tiger either in the Cigarette Forum or here in GD.

Man, I loved that boat! Rigged and painted by the best.

Do you miss it?

GL, the pic of the interior was right after Phil finished it (you can still see the protective paper on the new windscreen). We were running it down to Key West for the weekend. The pic of it aired out is the Long Beach Poker run in 04. I couldn't hear for two days out of my left ear after that. The pic of the rooster was testing props in Havasu and the pic of the boat idling is in the Channel Islands Harbor right before an island run. I have some more pics of that day. I have to pay my fee though.
