Thanks finnman, that does help.

Curious what’s the lowest cruising speed you can achieve while still on plane ? Wondering in rougher water and tighter river sections what the comfortable low end speed is.

Got the boat just rigging electronics !

On my Skeeter, when I switched from the Yamaha 3 blade, similar to a Mercury tempest, to a Mercury Bravo LT 4 blade, I had a 3 mph lower planing speed with out using my trim tabs. With my 9x12 tabs I can stay on plane down to about 14 mph. I do have a larger tab than their standard 4x12 ones that Skeeter supplies. If I remember right, when demoing one with the standard tabs, we got down to apx 17mph. These boats come with a 12" setback plate, not sure, but I would think that without a setback plate, it would be a little easier to stay on plane at lower speeds.

Any other thoughts ?

Seems to top out at 53 mph with the 19” tempest… which I’m ok with, just curious of others results.

I think I’m going to get the plugs for the tempest… not a huge fan of the “surging”

Hey just wondering who has been running one and any thoughts on props and results. My thought always has been you need to run a few props on your boat with different loads and different waves before you can zero in on what works best and if you can find a good all around solution.

Ours is coming with is 19 inch merc tempest pro.
Thanks Bryan
Lund runs lots of props on all the models and then makes a prop recommendation (For overall good handling and performance).I have participated in the past.
The recommendation on your rig is 19 Tempest.

I just ran a 19p tempest plus on my comp 205 spt with 250sho. 90f day 45gal of fuel and I was getting 57-58mph at 5900-5950rpm. Compared to my enertia 18p, below 27mph, the tempest slips more on acceleration and the boat rides with higher bow. My 18p enertia runs 56-57mph. I would test enertia 18 or 19p and play with engine height. If I move motor all the way up, I can see 59-60mph but I start losing grip in large waves. Need a jackplate.
