you were only at 2000RPM going 30MPH? There will not be a huge difference in the RPM with someone behind the boat. If that motor is made to turn 3500 RPM's you might already have the right prop on it?

I believe that was 2000prm on the prop shaft. I think he has a 2:1 gearbox so that would put the motor at 4000rpm.

It will be exiting to see what speed he will be able to get with such a massive reduction on the gear.

Acceleration and better ability to hold a stable speed( better torque on the propeller). Top speed will suffer naturally.

I found a 16" diameter (it will be reduced to 15.7") and a 28" pitch propeller.Attached are the photos out of the mold,Manufacturer "unlupervane" told me he may be able increase the pitch a little more ,This is the max diameter to install suitable with the 2:1 gearbox.
Otherwise I will sell this gearbox and buy a new 1:1.26.

That interior looks great.

Wanna come over to my house and help me with mine?

Great job on this boat; it's amazing how many people appear to be following your progress.

Good luck with the new prop.

Cbryan,It is the prop rpm which was 2000 and engine was screaming with the 30mph with no load.I will have a new prop tomorrow,also thinking to test how it performs if I will find some to get ski behind it.
