That looks supremely clean. Beautiful work.
Thanks Scott it's getting there.

That was WFO Bailey! 5300 is redline and ideally they want you to prop it for 5200

I think there is more speed in your future

My X9 GPS's at 47 unloaded with the LTR 330, I don't have any experience, but I would think you would get at least 5 mph faster.

I am running an Acme 3-blade that improved top and bottom end over the stock 13x13. I look forward to hearing what she does with a new prop!!

I read all the prop threads and hear lots of good things about Acme, especially on top end speed. But then again, I haven't heard a bad word about Eric at OJ. Should be fun figuring out a prop once I get these alignment issues figured out and get a couple of hours on the new motor.

Went to take a look at my mounts and my port side trunion leans to the bow like yours and mine is factory. I gave my aft motor mounts a very slight lift to get my shaft alignment to spec @ .003. Something I will keep an eye on. Interesting thread.

Spent the weekend, in my garage of course dialing in my shaft alignment and installing Zero Off. What a pleasure being indoors with heat! One more shakedown cruise to verify ZO is working then I'm off to Florida! Got a little snow coming down, better cover up the old tug before she goes outside.

Fantastic project Mike! You will probably get more top end with a new prop. I clocked 51 with GPS on my '97. (I don't even know what's on it for a prop.)

I wanted to see how fast it would go. My X14 topped out around 42 mph.
