    Well things went lost better today. I'm still haveing a big slip problem. but the more I play with the fuel presser the better the motor is running. I got a high 73mph out of it today and I know there is more left in it to be hade. The next step is to work on the slip probem. I feel that I'm able to still get another 2 or 3 mph out of it still. Sooooo better news today!

    I was just kidding you. But in reality sometime when you go thru all that testing, time, cost of parts etc, at some point maybe a peek at the used boat market these days could find you the speed and a super buy possibly. Good luck with your project and I hope you reach your goal. See you at the Regatta this year.

    Just curious, what was your top before the SC?

    Also, what RPM and prop size are you running at 73?

    I ran a 24p at 5000rpm stock at 62 to 63mph. Now I'm turning a 28p at 5200 to 5250 at 73+

    It's odd that your slip has increased by 5%. I agree that 20% is way to high but I'm not convinced that it's the result of the X being to high. If it were mine I would try another stock 28 and if the same result, I would try and borrow 5 blade 26 or another 28.

    At WOT, are you throwing a large roost or are you having to trim high to get the bow and he RPM's up ? This would suggest improper cup for your hull design.

    When I had my 25' Warlock V bottom I dealt with many of these same issues, after installing a blower, which were ultimately resolved with the right 28 pitch prop.

    YES JOHN I'm triming high and shooting a big roost. But I'm still gaining speed. but I feel I'm triming to high. I thought that a 26 5 blade would be worth a try but I dont think any one would have one to try around here. I also thought another 28 would be a good start too. The boat does not feel like the 28 is to big at all. Gets out of the hole good and feels good but I feel I'm triming to high. What did you do with your last boat??? Do you think another 28 might do the trick?? Or is the 5 blade 26p the real answer??? I need some help. But the motor is really starting to run really strong.

    What I found over the years with Bravo 1 4 blades is that brand new out of the box, these props can be very different. When I had the Warlock I had 2 stock 28's that I bought new. With one the boat ran with the bow down and 76 mph and with the other it ran 80 and carried the bow nice and high.

    I am running a Merc factory labbed 28 on my 26. Probably the best prop I've ever owned. I have faith in the Merc props, you just need to find the right one. I would try another 28 or 2 1st

    Glad to hear you are getting the new motor setup dialed
