Prop Slippage

I have a 18' stratos with a 150 johnson o/b , having a problem when boat is turning right when on plane , with prop slipping , having to slow down so prop can catch back up , trimming down helps a little bit , no problem turning left at planing speed .boat just started doing this .prop and skeg looks normal.

 

Sounds like you might be a little high on transom height. You could try adding some up to the prop. The Stratos boat tends to have a transom with a little too much height.
