It's not the boat speed I'm looking for ;it's engine rpm. Boat speed should end up within a mph or two of what I've currently experienced but I have to be sure that operating WOT is between 4500 & 5500 no matter how the boat is loaded. So, if it's just me in the boat, I want to pick a prop that let's me get 5500 rpm at full throttle so that when I have 4 people in the boat and dive gear, I can still make the minimum 4500 rpm at full throttle.

Completely different propeller shapes though both are 13.25" x 17". It will be interesting to see how the new Yamaha propeller goes.

Took the wife out on the Avon this morning on an early coffee run since she hasn't been this boat yet.

New prop WOT 43 mph at 5100 rpm. Gained 400 rpm and max speed remained the the same.

Also, last weekend, updated the trailer lights to LED.
