Thanks everybody,

I have found out there is a compermise in setting up this boat. I raised the motor 2 bolt holes ie one from the last. I think its not bad but now this is as much trim up as i can get before the motor head hits the crossbar.

This might be the best i can do with this setup. Do you think the trim limitation will be a problem. I am hoping this will make a difference in the performance , water coming in the hull and the miliage.

Thanks again.
Darren

Find flat water and get a WOT rpm reading. That will get you an idea of the correct prop. Then you can (if it's worth the effort) start tweaking similar props to get teh best performance.

Or be like me, and live with what you've got.
