    what kind of boat do you have? And how much power is in it...do you know what it weighs? What prop is under it?

    Those gears (32's) seem awful big for your motor. What rpm are you turning with the 22"s ? I have over 700 hp and I run 12"s with a 11 1/4 16 menkens prop and top out around 7100 rpm.
