    3 blade mercury cleavers or os mazcos are cheapest to find used to try
    4 blade mercury humpbacks would do best for the hull,,,cost more for testing
    then id go to dewald for best props 1nce u find what u need,,,,expensive but knows race props
    these are all over hub props,,,like the choppers u have just pointed eared cleavers
    can look on the prop section here to see some
    I sold the ex caliber last yr to a guy that saw it at a poker run and wanted it when he saw it passing 32-38' boats in the rough ,,,lol
    I just sold my last set of props few months ago had 30s and 32s and sold cheap
    as don't have small shaft motors any more
    ,,,,,,,id love to have that hull here,,,,,,,
    looks awsome and know will ride awsome in 2-4'ers fast
    great candidate for a single new 450r,,,,wont be super fast but ride great
    twin modified 300x motors know id would go past 100
    again as a fast wave crusher not a calm water high speed hull
    28 tuff would be that in that size with the twins,,,,
    also if u measure from end of hull (where k planes are) to where motors mount and tell me width of jack plates
    I can give u a good start point on motor height
    you mean from k planes to top of jackplate? Where engines are mount? We measure in cm 65cm 25,6 inch? Jackplate is 96cm wide 37,8 inch?
    The jackplate is at top now. Can lower it 3,5 inch

    looking for distance from end of boat bottom,,,,,thats where the lifting strake ends and at hulls full width of the wetted surface
    to the end of the hull where the jack plates bolt to,,,,that distance looks 12" -16" long
    then the jack plate offset from hull to motor,,,,, looks to be 5-6" plates
    that total length of the 2 will give the starting point of how high to set prop centerline to offset distance

    last set of 30 mazcos I sold 500 for the pair,,,some out there some want a lot for old school props
    but descent priced 1s don't last,,,lol
    approx. 26" offset to bottom
    now they only stepped up the offset looks to be 1"
    to use the offset to hold transom up when landing off a wave
    but aerate while props hooking,,,
    lots of theory in these hulls,,,,
    if go off of the rule of thumb of 1" rise to every 12" of set back ur starting point is 2" of propshaft centerline to bottom of hull
    I would still start @ 1 3/4" and go up as needed
    where the strake ends not the extension box but true boat full bottom
    here is a pic of the trips with custom 4 blade cleavers
    22" offset so center was 1 3/4 above,,,outside were only 1 1/4" as needed the grip in the rough and turning as boat was so skinny
    and aerated outside props more when were higher,,,,finding set up is key

    raise jack plate 3/4" to start and find some cleavers
    as u cannot have props lift bow as them big steps has no hull in water if bow is up
    for steps to do their job transom has to be planted

    Ok. Thank you very much for help.
    Its my first outboard so i dont have so much knoledge.

    I have to measure that at propshaft and look at the gauges inside where it goes so i can find the position when i drive.
    Hope this works. Little chine walk on gloss water is ok. But now it hits surface from one side to other.
    Its Little dangerous.
    will try it on rough water too then if it feels more safe.

    if u looking at the pair 30 mazco cleavers for 600
    really good price for em
    mazcos I found had better bite in the midrange,,,just a couple mph slower than a merc cleaver
    with that light hull and 260 motors probably can pull em,,,
    worst case senerio have em pulled back to 28 if cannot get rpms up
    u have 250 hp on cowls
    what motors do u have

    Yes. But now i maybe have found 28p in sweden. And have found other 28p so i think thats what im gonna buy.
    Dont really know much of the motors. Did not get much info from the italian when i bought the boat. It was good price on it so i did not care so much. I think they are 2.4L carb. Think they are old but rebuild 8 hours ago.

    I'm sure its been mentioned, but you can't balance a boat on calm water without a pad. It'll always chine walk looking for a place to balance. Sharp v is good for cutting through slop.
