Default Sweers In For 30-Foot Predator Catamaran Sea Trial, Out For Sarasota Race

Good way to start a long holiday weekend, http://speedonthewater.com/in-the-ne...-sarasota-race

Unfortunately for fans of the Sailor Jerry/Autonation raceboat, the team won't run in Sarasota this weekend. But they'll be back.

“We didn’t have the right props,” he said. “These little cats are all about propellers. From one set of propellers to another, you can see a 10- to 15-mph difference combined with gear ratio and pitch. I expect this boat to run 105 to 110 mph with the right props.”

Randy will figure it out for sure, he and his crew are great at what they do.

Another Predator customer with the same setup has gotten great results with this prop ==> 14 3/4 x 32 Dewalds 4 blades

gear ratio: 1.62
