I have a 24 Mako. Approx. 2500 lbs with a Johnson 235 outboard on it. I'm running close to 6000 rpm WOT! Top speed on the GPS is only about 40-44mph and she seems to really spin hard on takeoff with out going anywhere. I think my pitch or my prop is totally wrong. Anyone know what I should get or what I need. Maybe someone could come out and see what they think for themselves? I'm in Harrison Twp. Call me up or post back. 586-292-1770

I have a 15X17 prop. It is aluminum and we ran this at 6000 with 4 people and a full tank and 1 - 1/2 tank. Recommended range is 5-6 and the dealer said I should run no more than 5400-5600 safely.
Someone said try a 4 blade and go up one higher pitch? an 18 maybe?
