    IMO dont modify that bottom, big mistake. you have the wrong props. im a big chopper prop fan, but not on that hull. my 2 cts, get a pair of trophys, solasl4, not expensive investment, and will make huge difference. 4blades. btw that boat is beautiful, my dream boat. vking is right. maybe turbo 4 blade, rev4.?

    Hi. Some update. I bought some 4-Blade 15x28p cleaver props. I did my first test run today. I drove in 82mph with no chine walk. There is more speed to get but this was only a short test drive to see how the props works on the boat.
    Thank you for all the help i got here.

    It could be that the previous owner kept the props he ran and installed some choppers he wanted to get rid of. Almost all of us go faast nuts have a couple of "favorite" props we won't let go of. Good choice of props you made.

    [QUOTE=Starholk;3162459]Hi. Some update. I bought some 4-Blade 15x28p cleaver props. I did my first test run today. I drove in 82mph with no chine walk.

    glad props worked for u
    now time to slowly dial in prop height to what boat likes,,,,
    figured the 28 cleavers were a good rpop to motors and hull,,,,,4 blades are a plus
    lot better control in the sloppy water,,,
    now enjoy and be safe with it,,,,,
