I have a 23' Sleekcraft with a 454/bravo. Its a 1989 with 260 hours. It has a 17p stainless prop on it now. To me that seems underpropped with the 454. My Carlson 18 swung a 21 just fine. I'm thinking the 454 should be able to do a 21p or 23p.
I do a lot of long range cruising between Laughlin and London bridge and dont wanna be wringing it out with a 17p prop. Any idea on speeds I might see with a 21-23p prop?
I've never had the boat wet, thats gonna change very soon, but I only have the prop mounted and need a spare.
