I was able to run to the cabin and take some pics this morning. Here they are. Please let me know what you guys think. Thanks - Bruk.

Well, I ran the Black Max 14.5 x 19 and had much better results with it than the Spitfire 4 blade prop. I got 48 for my top end speed at 5600 RPM. My average upper speed was around 46 to 47 and average RPM was 5500. This was just me in the boat. To compare, I got 44 top end speed at 5150 RPM with the spitfire, again with just me in the boat. I think it's pretty good. Question is: Without going to a SS, can I do better?

I wouldnt even try. Maybe pick up a black max 17p for when you have a heavy load of people/gear. Id think with just you- the 17p will over rev it.

You may be right Kevin. What about an 18 pitch?

That's great. FWIW, it's 2-3MPH faster on average that what I used to get from my 1850 FishHawk/150Suzuki w/SS prop.

So how are you liking the boat so far? Do you get spray over the sides in a cross wind?

No, not at all. Yesterday the winds were 15 to 20 mph out of the south southwest. I ran all the stretches of the river, of which some were directly adjacent to the winds, while plowing water with the motor trimmed all the way down to finish break in on the motor, and I literally did not feel one drop or see any drops on the full windshield. The boat is a super dry ride! I absolutely love the smooth ride when it is trimmed up. It rides almost as smooth as my glass 189 Triton did years ago. I am totally satisfied with it's performance.

The 3 blade Black Max is giving me at least 4 mph more over the Spitfire, and more importantly, I am getting 350 more RPMs with it.
