Took the new rib out today with waverunner to give it a trial, great day, had most of Tremadog bay to ourselves. The ribcraft performed just as expected,
but have a dilema on prop choice, maybe some one with a simillar set up could advise, the prop that came with the rib was a 19" pitch and we had our doubts before setting off. the max revs for the suzuki is 6,000. With a good blip of the throttle we were hitting 5,000 revs then straight up to 6,000 with plenty of travel left in the throttle. we were then doing 37knts. but not wanting to over rev the engine we had to keep under 6,000revs.
The 19" will have to go and barring being able to borrow a 21" or 23" which would be the logical prop to go for. We did try dickies boat yard to see if they had any props to lend us as sujested by Jono but to no evail.
