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.


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.

Well soon enough you will know for sure,for what its worth , your wake pic looks like a boat diggin a hole to me,not full on step yet.Good luck man.

Welp? The second set of props I have are just a touch bigger than the ones mounted. I had the origional props pulled and confirmed they are 16x16. At this point, I'm not really sure where to go with this. The bottom get scraped every 3 months and the dive report always says "excellent" for paint condition. My survey 2 years ago reported the hull was dry as a bone. And I don't think I am over loaded. This rig has been a real dog since had it. Other than being old and tired, I just don't have any more answers.

Ill be putting on some fresh bottom paint to touch up a few spots and a hull wax and she's ready to splash again. And will be putting up the for sale sign.

PM me if interested in a set of 16x16 props.
