    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.
