i was ment to have 175 originally but there aint none about, and then it was a 200opti due to price and avilability it was 150opti been told the topo end will not be all that differnt but the thrust would of been better of course,
Yep, she's the 6.5. Mine's 2x jockey and a matching 2man flip-back bench which I like and I've got the wide race consol.She goes really well. You would need to run a 21"P prop with a 175. I'm running a 19" which gives me about 41knts @ 5300rpm. The pull-out is instant. I'm gonna get a 21" to use for cruising which should see her topping out around the 46/47knt mark. Cruising around 3800-4rpm she's doing 33knts approx. As for the hull, it tracks like an arrow and rides beautifully. The only slight criticisem would be that on hard turns at slowish speeds I do get quite a bit of cavitation, a bit of throttle tickling smooths it out.

Hi, I have a 5.75 Viper & a 150 Opti! Just about every one I spoke to reckoned on a 19" laser II, which seems to do the job well! I'm getting about 5500 rpm at 45 knots, I would have thought a 21" on a 6.5M would be a bit over propped!

Umm, not sure. I reckon that my Vipermax running a 19" is a bit under-propped. Horses for courses I suppose.

She's pulling about 5400 trimmed, which'll give 41knts . Pull out is instant.
