I can see them fine.....bunch of blue squares with question marks in em.....I always liked Bill, some real good out take videos, funny.

So the new question, how fast at 1500 rpm or so....I was about 5.5 knt before going to 16x16 then 1500-1600 would produce about 7-7.5 knots.....still with the hull in the water, if this helps any.

I think I may have them fixed now. Thanks everyone for your patience and walking through this issue with me.

I have a haul-out scheduled for mid December to look at the props, and address the stuffing boxes and transducer.

Yep - I am much slower at 1500. I was trolling at 6-6.5 kts and I had to be up around 1800 to maintain that speed, but I was quartering into a 2 foot chop. But when I am in the marina no wake zone, I'm usually at 1200 to 1500 to give me 5 - 7 knts. I am usually under 4 at idle.

Perhaps 3rd time's the charm. Had to upload them to a legitimate hosting site.

OK... based on those photos the speed on your SIMRAD is garbage. That is not a 10 knot wake. Behind an F32 that wake is only present around 15-17 knots.
