    Salt water vs Fresh water?

    Prop upgrade for speed

    All- ended up going with a 13.8 x 13 spitfire four blade. Will install over next week. Any thoughts on performance improvements you think I’ll see around speed? Thanks for all the help, dealer helped me spec as well and all agreed that 17 pitch was not correct
