I was asking what rpm and top speeds you were getting with the "new" boat when you tried those various props that you listed.

 

There are no more yearly designations for outboard motors. All major companies use model numbers for identification. What is the model number on yours?

 

Did a dealer perform the rigging along with a fuel restriction and bubble test on the motor?  There could be something out of spec on the motor, and a compression test, cylinder balance test, and a fuel pressure test, throttle linkage-tps travel and voltage inspection,  and fuel restriction may reveal an abnormality.

Hi Mike,

 Can you give us your current setup? Prop to pad, WOT RPM and water pressure? You may indeed need to try the 21P Gade for hole shot. You should also pick up a weed ring (diffuser ring) that installs into the inside of the gearcase housing to channel the exhaust gas thru the prop instead of over it..
