    So after enough years I'm finally going to upgrade the prop. What would you recommend for a 21ft Howard with a standard LS-6 BBC? Champion V-drive and a 1" shaft. We ski a lot and don't really run all out often but will occasionally. Anybody have a recommendation of have one that would work?

    Looking for some recommendations on fuel level senders that don't cost more than my carb:rolleyes: I have twin 13 gallon tanks and one gauge. Are there any quality "universal" senders on the market that won't break my back? Something in the $20-$40 range?
