Measured my x-dimension today and it is 17". I just dont understand why Chris craft set it so hi. I think this explains why it was so fast with original merc 5.0 230hp motor 52mph with 19" mirage plus.. if X is 17" where does it set my prop axle height.. I would like to hear some prop suggestion..

so you have a alpha one or a Alpha gen II outdrive ?? what year and set up -- engine / drive / transom assembly is in the boat ? current hp is ???

Chris Craft was an OMC company for many years so is this a 1988 year model or back ? if so Alpha one Merc ?

IMO --- alpha drives with 23 ft boats and down the Mirage prop seemed not to be the best prop period.

Problem solved, revolution 4 20" was superior compared to mirage plus, bravo 1 22" was even better than revolution 4.
