Are they?! They look right on my end! I'm sorry! No clue. Anywho, I'm grabbing this prop Wednesday, mint and used. I hope it brings me up to 68 or so, keeping some low end grunt for hauling the family.

I have no idea! Pics look good from my view!

Tried a 12x23 stainless.....very disappointed. Really trying to get upper 60's with my v4 omc 115 bolted to transom.. :cry:

But then I see this on expected speed, and am thinking I'm actually doing well. Maybe that's all I have?

My lower unit yesterday after foil was removed, and 13x19 aluminum, was replaced with a 12x23 black stainless.

Although I sometimes feel like I'm talking to my self on here, I hope to dig up some people that have vintage speed boats running deep in their soul. Today was Hancock pond in Denmark Maine. Tweaking tweaking, new personal best! Gps below 58.4. V4 omc 115 bolted to transom, 12 in diameter 23 pitch stainless trimmed up to the moon!

Good job. Keep tweaking. You'll hit 60 soon enough.

:shock: I hope your right @AdamDK

Everything I read with the hull/motor set up is saying I'm 3.2 mph over expected.

Going to try a 4 blade stainless 25 pitch Wednesday. Hope I can get on plane....

Been going out, a little less frequency though. Anywho, heading out today to blow through more fuel. Here are a few pics from two days ago.
