Are you sure of the prop pitches? At 0% slip, 1.85 gear ratio, and 5500rpm you top speed should be about 48 mph. My Erude 175 twists a 17P SST II 5500rpm to about 41 mph on 97 Dauntless 20. At 0% slip it would run about 45. Marty D

Marty,

I'm positive of the pitch...Remember the High five is 5 blades...What rake is your 17P??? My SST was blueprinted by sanderson Propeller in Chester, Va...
