Well, I just want to say thanks to the folks on the site for helping me with setup on my 15ft striper and new merc 4stroke EFI small foot. I switched from an aluminum 17 inch 10 inch diameter prop (dealer recommended-did I say that Longshore Marine are idiots?) To a 14 inch quicksilver prop stainless. New numbers 41.1 mph by GPS with 2 adults 1 child and 6 gallon gas. Hole shot is incredible and overall boat is now just a Rocket! Max RPM's are 5800, just below max recommendation 6000RPM. The range is 5500-6000 so I am happy to be in the upper limits and I gained about 5mph over previous prop.
Thanks to all, particularly Sal
Hen
