Has taken me some time, but I have sorted out the cavitation issues I had with Prime 2.
I put a CMC jack plate on the back and installed a Michigan Wheel Ballistic s/s 24" pitch prop. Took her out today and oly experienced some cavitation in tight port turns, which given it as a tad lumpy was a great result.
I can lower the engine on the jack plate by about an inch without any fear of fouling my steering gear. Having the jack plate on the back has setback by engine by 5 1/2" which has the prop spining in cleaner water....that made a big difference even before changing the prop.
I could not see what size pitch prop was on her before as the markings had worn away, but with the mods above we saw 37Knts without be at WOT on a lumpy sea.
just need to wait for a better sea to see what she can do at WOT.
