what did she weigh in fully decked out? 1700 kgs? I would go for a 3 blade 23"
40 knots aint all that bad. That hull will take loads of punishment so dont worry about a force 8. Its the driver who will chicken out miles before the
hull. Just be careful not to fall into 'black holes" Get a Michigan wheel 'rapture" stainless at about 250 bucks Fob florida. Did you go for trim tabs?

Not too sure on the weight - 500L of petrol doesn't help!!! I have a 24" Suzuki stainless prop I had dirt cheap on Ebay - it's like new but will wait until I get the transom jack sorted before trying it.

I have bought a set of tabs - the new QL interceptor type - not fitted yet though.

Will have a look at that prop.
