With 1 person, 1/4-1/2 tanks and motors raised about 1/4" I think I can break 110 maybe even get to the 112 mark. According to my Tachs though, my rev limiters do not come on until 6300-6400.
Don't waste any more time on props or whatever.

Bring the boat up to Joey at East Coast Marine...... You'll leave a few days later running low 120's....... without engine mods.......or spinning in...... simply proper setup

I did speak to Joey last fall about prop selection. He was a big help and obviously very knowledgeable.
