    Playcraft Tritoon w/Verado 350 - looking for engine setup advice

    Anyone have any experience with tritoons?
    Have a 2018 2700 Infinity with big toons
    2018 Verado 350
    1.75 gearcase
    Stock prop mirage plus 19 pitch
    motor is on the lowest position on transom
    I believe it’s an XL or 25” motor
    anyone have any setup information
    seems like the motor might be too low

    My 27 Playcraft Extreme with a 300R is running a consistent 54 mph. I have a 20 pitch Rev 4 15" dia. and also run a 19 pitch Enertia Eco 16" dia. Both run within a mph of each other but the massive blade surface on the Enertia carries weight better and doesn't slip at cruise speeds or in turns like the Rev 4. I am running a 1.75 Sport master with a 17" Porta bracket and the prop shaft is 1 1/2 above the center toon when running light and 1 1/2 below at the lowest point ever. The boat runs fastest with the motor trimmed slight negative which really surprised me.

    I just ordered my new PlayCraft for next year and this one has been a good learning platform to go from.

    My motor is buried way below the center toon
    Like an inch above the anti ventilation plate is where my motor is sitting
    runs 56 at around 5800 rpm
    I need to see around 6400 rpm
    trim set at 5

    I was talking with Jon at Marty’s Marine and his only thing was get a herring prop…..otherwise the mirage plus is the best prop for the tritoon. FJ propeller didn’t have anything except….let’s just try this or that to get the prop to work better. Nobody had any props to try or has any tried and true experience….which I am suprised on LOTO. I think I called cool breeze propeller too and they again didn’t have any experience so it would just be giving them what my current specs are and doing some mods that may or may not produce results.
