Default Propeller Adjustments

I'm still relativity new to the serious go fast stuff.... The Boat a had prior to my 36 Nortech Cat was a 38 T/S Top Gun with 700 Zull's.... I have been playing around with different Props and I find it amazing that just a small change with Prop configuration, Diameter and or Pitch, makes a HUGE difference... I know this is important to all boats however the Cat seems much more sensitive to Prop adjustments then my V bottom... Anyone have any thoughts on this????

My Boats: '03 Lip-ship Gladiator - Purchased (Not from Lip-Ship) w/ worn out Merc's posted on OSO Classifieds and told to me had "Fresh Motors." Wish I would have gotten to Philly's 1 Day Sooner and bought the Gladiator he sold to Tommy!!!

search my responses and you'll see quite a bit about about what throttle-up has done with me..... and note my signature below.

good luck ------- and remember, handling is just as, if not more, important as speed!
