Author Topic:   Newtauk with SS Prop

I am very pleased with the performance of my new SS prop. I am running a 13.25 x 19 Rapture with a 2001 75hp 2 stroke.The boat is a 1988 Newport center console with a 28 gal tempo fuel tank and 250lb operator, yours truely.

The hole shot is much improved as well as the top end with the RPM pushing just over 5100.

The previous Mercury Aluminum 12.75 x 21 maxed at about 4800 RPM.

I swear the boat seams to track or feel "tighter" against the water with less wiggle in the stern at higher speeds.

I do feel some vibration in the steering once I put the motor into forward gear at about the slowest speed moving out of the slip. Should I be concerned with this occurance?

I don't believe you. I say you aren't a pound over 220.

I knew newt sold his Montauk, but didn't know he had a replacement. What did you end up with, newt?

What prop do you recomend for a Montauk with a Suzuki DF70 four stroke?

I wish I could have got together with you guys in NH, if you plan another trip this year I'll try to attend.

My new sled is a 1980 V20-Revenge, and she is working out quite nicely.

My sole reason for moving up was to make boating more of a family activity, and compared to the Montauk the Revenge is perfect. More seating, smoother ride, dry storage, a place for the toddler to nap, a porti-potty for the ladies (hope we never need to use it, and I never have to clean it), protection from wind and rain, higher gunnels, etc.

In two years with the Montauk, not once did the wife and two kids come out with me. In the past few weeks with the Revenge we have been out several times. So the plan is working. And I can still fish!

I think Bigshot runs the same motor as yours. I have a 13.25 x 19 SS on a 2001 75hp 2 stroke.

Maybe a 13.25 x 17.

Hopefully we will have a decent September. There is some talk about going up to Portsmouth, NH this Sunday.

I would like to get something around Cranes Beech or Plum Island this fall.
