    Default Prop for loaded deck boat...

    We have a 2005 Magic deck with 496ho. I have 26 pitch on it now but when loaded with gas beer ice and 10 or 12 passengers it can be pretty sluggish getting on plane. Would dropping to a 24 make much difference? Or go lower?
    First boat - 1968 Starcraft 14' 40hp
    Second boat - 1982 15.5' Glastron 115hp
    Current boat #1 1987 Ski Nautique 230 hp
    Currnet boat #2 - 2005 Magic DB 425 hp
