I should have explained.

I'm currently running a 115 Johnson that's turning a 13 1/2X20 ported Raker prop. Maximum speed was 46.7 mph on my GPS. That was at 5400 rpm.

Maybe not where you are

It may not be the case where your located but it sure is on the north end of the lake. As they fish out where they are now they'll be showing up on you're door step next.
