Props for YT Hull
Love your column! Have re-learned a lot, and learned even more. Your earlier prop advice for my Vasserete was right on the money. The boat came with a trophy plus, and I tried a friendís tempest.
But it seems that I can't swing all the pitch. The trophy is a small hub, 23p and tachs at 6k. I can hit the limiter, so the tach is fairly accurate. The tempest is also a 23, and I have to really go up with the plate to tach out. Iíve got a 24p merc chopper, and Iíve not tried this yet. Am I just not airing out enough? Or maybe a set up problem? My buddy's got a Vasserete, made in the same month, running an older engine, but similar hp, and we're dead even. My brother in law's GPS says 64mph. He says he goes 70ish.what do you think we should be getting top speed? I've read thru my prop book twice, but it would be nice to have some hands on advice.
Keep up the good work!JP
