You might be spot on. The 21" 4 blades are too small and are only 14" diameter. I tried a set of 27" Mirage plus but that was too much pitch, (only got to 5000 rpm or so with no trim), and I didn't...

That's awesome. I didn't realize til I looked back at your old picture that you got rid of the "on the edge" graphics. Is that added reinforcing on the transom for the new power? The LED trim display...

I'm surprised at 23"pitch, do verado's have 1.75:1 gears? I was thinking I would need 26-27" pitch. You know what his fuel cap is? Was his always an OB boat?

Any more pictures?

Thanks
