    Got a chance to get some new numbers.

    72 Mph at 6100 RPM with the 25 Tempest. With about 25 Gallons of fuel, and most of it in the front tank. I know 75 is there, so that is my goal for the next time out as I burn more fuel. I am still learning the chine walking. I am still really figuring out how to balance on the pad. But today I was able to run 71-72 for a long time till I ran out of room.

    Wondering how a different prop will change things. I do feel I would turn a higher number with a nose cone and a chopper or ET style prop. I run out of water pressure now. I have 3 holes plugged, might plug the 4th and retest

    Not sure how many people still follow this thread, but I have a 200 Opti I am putting on the boat. I ran a best of 72 mph with no prop testing with my 2.5 200 carb motor and a 25 Tempest.

    I got a 26 Bravo I the other day to try. I am hoping for mid to high 70s. I feel like the extra torque of the 3.0 will be nice. The Bravo is stock, no vent holes and with the flare. I might have a shop drill 4 PVS style holes and run it. Maybe cut off the flare after some testing. But I will also try the 25 Tempest but I feel with the low revs of the opti (5750) I'll hit the limiter.

    Has anyone tried a Solas Scorpion/Rubex S3? That prop has caught my eye, and a lot of people have had good luck with it.

    my .o2$ 20 boca grande pocket. 300 hpdi series 2 vmax all props tested in the fall.. h20 temp bout' 70f. one battery, 25-30 gall fuel. just me, 220lbs.
    26 fury- 80.5 easily hit my rpm limits 6k good hole shot
    27 fury- 81.2 easily hit my rpm limits 6k good hole shot
    29 tempest 83.7 hit my rpm limits w/little effort delayed hole shot, but no blow out

    my props are getting pretty wore out, so I had the 27 worked to 28(have yet to run it). going to prop shop this spring(which is why I'm finally logging on to this site!)
    26 is my everyday fishing prop

    my brother has a 22 stingray SCB and we ran the 26 signature eagle 4 69mph for 60 miles in a trnmt last month.. that's with exact same engine as mine, 3 people(650lbs), 50 gallons fuel, lots of tackle, cooler full of drinks, 20lbs ice, etc. i think I'm going to try to find a hill eagle 4 on this site to buy/try...
