Re: Need help, recommendations on props for a Fountain 35 Lightning

I was thinking from my experience with my 29 Fever that the elevation change would take some of the low end away from the boat. I was thinking of trying 28 pitch to start. I just don't want to buy...

Re: Need help, recommendations on props for a Fountain 35 Lightning

Thanks for the advice. I was told from one person to go 4 pitches lower at Tahoe. I only went down two pitches with my 29 Fountain.

Thoughts on lab finish props?

Re: Recommendations on purchase of a new boat 35' - 38'

Thank you for the pointers. I want a boat that is very fast (without adding a supercharger), has a great cabin (one you could spend the night in) and has a smoother ride in rough conditions.

Julie,

I think the prop is a Merc Bravo 1 26 pitch (Lake Tahoe) and a 28 pitch for sea level.
