I have a '71 13' with a 40hp Johnson looking to get as much out of it as I can. Any suggestions on the best way to do this? New prop?

Fred, you are already at the maximum recommended horsepower. I had a 1971 `13 Sport myself, and I had a 1976 35h.p. Evinrude on it and it flew. I also trolled with it with no problem. If you are going to ski and tube and stuff, then I guess getting more out of a 40h.p. is a good idea. Good luck-Jack Graner.
