Ive got a 22' scarab with a 23p quicksilver laser II stainless prop equipped with vent holes.. This is a big heavy boat an trying to get on plane is a joke unless i really baby the throttle. Once on plane its all good. I top out at 68 mph at 4500 an that cool with me. Can i get away with having the vent holes welded shut or should i think about the purchase of a new prop? Im convinced the 3 vents are causing my cavitation while trying to get on plane from an idle.
Ive got a stainless 19p merc vengeance on hand an the stock alum prop as well. Just like the speed the 23 gives me on top.
