We,re going to start with the lowest setting. The motor might be able to come up a bit but since this is not a pad boat and this is not a surfacing prop I felt it best to start testing at this setting to eliminate prop blow out. The boat , aka (skow lol)) will probably need a higher lifting prop like a turbo to get the hull up. Mike is looking to run in the 40's. Hey "when it doubt, trim it out!" :cool: Raider<><>

Mike running 40's? God help us, he has trouble walking 3 miles an hour. After 20 MPH before he'll think he's flying. Raider keep an eye on that boy! ;)

Raider, Thanks for letting me help you put the motor on. I would say it the other way around but I cant lie that bad LOL. Im ready to rock and troll. Now if I can get me a kicker motor I'd be all set. :D Dale dont worry my boat may not go as fast as yours but I'll still catch more fish :D
