give us a quick call and we can talk about your set up, this way we can get you dialed in where you need to be.

also we can talk about a trading in your 25 pitch if you want. Darin

A little more info is needed. What is the recommended rpm of the motor?
Gear ratio?
Year of the boat?
What type of water do you run in?
What drives?
Is the prop a Mirage or Mirage Plus?

The numbers you posted don't seem right with a 1.5 gear ratio. Are you sure about the speed and rpm?

We are in Key West for the Worlds and VERY busy working on props in the pits. It may take a couple days for us to respond. If you would like to talk with us in person we will be back in the shop next week.

The drives are in the basement. That's what we did back then. It's a 3-blader boat that needs Mercury Hi-performance to lab to gain a little speed. Plus with hours a dyno might help determine the actual h/p. They ran approximate 78 gps out of the gate new.
