    He had no problems with it. Had a lot more low end grunt. Great for pulling whatever. He also went from a 19p to a 21p, so his cruising rpms were lower.

    maybe the 21 pitch prop was just a little much for the 305 2 barrel because it really lugged sometimes, so maybe the 21 will be perfect for the 355,thanks that was the answer that i was hoping for..took this week end off to get going but as usual ,weather went bad again.

    I only had an issue once with my 4.3 and the 21P I had ten ppl in the boat and it would not plane until I had a couple ppl move up to the front. It was prolly too much for the 4.3.

    Weather really? Here is tonight....again!! GRRR

    Thanks Jersey!

    I looked back at last year on FB and I had already had the boat in the water on April 8th. I just talked to a friend at the cabin, they are still driving trucks out to go ice fishing as the ice is still over 30 inches thick.

    Ice out happened May 2nd. The guy I am getting the motor from is now in China for a "Super Secret" project with inboards. I have taken the 4.3 out, now I have to wait until he gets back to get the new motor.

    The 4.3 is out. And the 5.7 Has to be in by the 4th. I am the Uncle that supply's the fun. This hull is the same as the Outlaw 20 so I know it will handle more. My biz is growing stupid/scary fast. My goal is to have this boat as fast as it can be. Then I want to get a "Poker Run" Boat.... LOL. Dream big! Right?! I have tried to attach photos....But I need sleep.

    You’ll love the extra power. I had a 350 and a 383 in my 186 Sunsport. It moved pretty good.
