    My Hondo flat, with a similar engine and cam (276/278 at 50 110 .714) 22% gears and an 11 1/2x 15 prop would ski or "haul the mail" if anything my prop slipped to much out of the hole at full throttle(7200 rpm). Depending on the prop it will act like your stall. Remember its a 1500# boat that planes easy with a BBC, not a 4400# '74 Impala your trying to launch. Also I'm not sure what "banderlog" water managment is but I wouldnt be putting any water into the pipes with that cam....unless you like milk shakes in your oil pan!
    If you love someone set them free, If they come back with the cops...RUN!!!

    Depends on what you want and the boat set up. I have a Hondo runner bottom and I ran a 268/[email protected] on a 110lsa with 12s/15s and an 11x16 prop and it was fine. If I had that cam and it was good I'd try it before I bought anything its honestly in the range I like for mine.
