thats a nice place to be -I got there before on nitrous.
100hp plate on the 406.

Ive only got 6% slip. Pretty efficient hull.

Was it scary in that small boat going that fast.
I don't 100% understand the prop slip thing.
Basically like a 6% traction loss yes?
can you get props with no slip?
What prop were you running on that boat?

The Sebring was not scary, its a solid handler at all speeds and feels planted. It is lite in the front but not like an STV or small outboard tunnell hull/cat I could have kited it by overtrimming.

Your propellers thrust isnt 100% 1-1 the hull and the prop and many factors contribute to "slippage" a transaction loss is a good way to describe it.

You will always have some slip- more blades and bigger diameters help this, but some slip is beneficial to acceleration and drive lifespan.

I was running a hydromotive 4 blade 27 6300RPM.

Depends on the parts. If Im having them put in for me I always get a square deal from Lavey.

On my own I use CP, Teague, Rex, and Imco, Dana- depends on the part.

I gunna open up the bottom end on my stock 350 mag just to check the bearings out and everything. I got a set of roller tipped rockers around here somewhere I was thinking of throwing on for the hell of it. I was also thinking maybe take the heads apart and do alittle porting mainly just remove casting defects. What do you think?
