Big thanks go out to Will ^ for hooking me up w/ a test prop from ACME! I think it is 15.25x17....correct me if I'm wrong Will.

The prop pushes the boat to almost 46mph with two people and a full tank of gas. Top RPM's were just over 5100!

Will, you should take that boat out sometime and drive it.....UNBELIEVABLE w/ the prop. Especially as we put more hours on it. The boat is really coming alive:D

5 deep would have been fun to try....I think it would have pulled it, but the footers would need to hold their breath for a bit :)

What are you kidding ... I'm testing that thing out for sure before I put this thing in the den for hibernation:). Bill from Acme said I should have it on Friday or Monday ... so you guys can hang on to your your demo props as that would be a HUGE selling point (to a customer like me)... I will let you know as soon as I get it on the water.
