No, not with the right power. 454 is small for that boat. Should have 502 mag or better yet 496 HO.

Did you call snopro on his?

3 Blade or 4 Bladed prop? If you have a 3 blade you're going to have to go with a 4 blade.

I never had a problem with my '99, 502 Mag with a 4 blade (24 or 26 pitch, I forget which). Tabs down, drive in and she popped right up.

My '96 Enticer was a bit more difficult but the 280 was never a problem.
