Re: Another prop question

Been reading today and are pontoon boats that much different than flat and v boats? Everything points to make sure the ventilation plate is barely skimming surface, if that is true i would have to raise my engine? (From memory), the area above vent plate is more rounded thus if it is under water it ...

Re: Another prop question

Tell me about the boat---is it rated for 90---or larger motor? Length, number of toons, weight, etc. If trimming up does nothing-you may be underpowered or too much weight in front of boat, etc..... FYI---I have 20ft Lowe 25in toons, 2 fishing seats up front-90 HP Merc Optimax, Merc SS prop 13 x 16...

Another prop question

So our top speed is 12 mph @ 5800rpm with a fairly light boat ( need to weigh her) michigan prop recommends Michigan Wheel Vortex 13-7/8" x 11 RH 941411 boat prop. I have no idea what is on boat now, but damn we are just way too slow, i can drop to cruise rpm about 4600 and it is still 10 mph speed ...

A couple Stainless steel bowls, sandpaper to rough up pontoon and bowls, and 3M 5200, oh and tape so it can dry a week or two and you would have 2 armor plated matching cones :boobies2 :mrgreen:

Re: Moving Engine Mount Aft

My input is this: Notice you sit at 1/2 pontoon now? You move that engine back and DO NOT add a 3rd pontoon OR engine pod (extra drag in this case) you will be so nose light it wouldn't be funny, the rear will slap and crossmembers will drag water and .....make it a slow beating on your soul.... :mr...
