    ventura build

    Looking into getting a 16' ventura with 2.4 200 20" and coned lower most likely 1.87 gears. What's a good start for props if i want one prop that i can cruise around the lake on and try for bigger numbers? How high are you guys putting the motor?
    Thanks

    28 ET, one inch above the bottom is a good start. Venturas ain't overly fussy about engine height for handling. Higher you run it, the faster it goes. Other props that work are Choppers, SRX, Hoss Triton. Depends on the gearcase you run and how it's configured to really get it dialed in but they run good in a lot of configurations.

    Thanks Pete maybe next year or the Connecticut River Run. I’m finishing mine before we attack his but plan on having both going by early summer. Mine had a hold up at the glass shop so i just got it back. I am making progress slowly, I have the bracket and engines hung.

    I run an ET cut 28 Chopper as my "everyday" prop, it's slightly faster than a real ET. For top end runs I use an old beat up 14 1/4 X 30 Chopper.
