Prop for AE-21

Hi Randy, 

       I have a 90' Hydrostream AE-21 with a 83' Johnson 235 ... I am running a Spinelli 27 pitch with though hub exhaust. I am not getting any top end... What pitch would you recommend I try... I was look at buying a Ron Hill (Hoss) 30 or 32 pitch would that be a good choice?  

Thanks, Damon

Damon, 

Find a good old-fashioned 14 1/2 X 28 chopper. You'll need all the bite you can get. I don't think you'll spin much more than that and certainly not a 30 or 32. Go for the chopper or a new chopper 2. 

Then you'll have lift........ 

Randy
