Great comments and contributions on this thread. I am sure most of you will agree that the info given has been of interest to most of us and in particular to those who have had some experience with the Verado outboards or perhaps considering such for their next rib
One must remember however that each hull is different and the results here provided will not necessary apply to another hull even of the same length.
as an example here is a photo taken during the recent Sopot Boat Show.
from the left we have a Parker 900 Baltic (twin Verado 250) then a Parker 900RS with the Mercruiser 4.2 (320HP) which is close to becoming Seahawk 5
and a Parker 750RS known as Seahawk 4. In the background Grand Hotel Sopot
Richard no doubt will be posting photos of his new rib and results of the first speed tests. We will for sure test a large range of props and select the best suited for that particular rib
