I appreciate the input. I will definitely call my dealer on Monday to discuss this with them. Been using them for many many years and I’m sure they will take this advise as constructive. ThanksJust my 2 cents, from a helpful suggestion:
Your boat with a 350 Verado is going to be under pitched at 15. I think your dealer is going way too conservative on outfitting the prop and mounting the motor. Mine did as well, and it took a little bit of an assertive push, back and forth disagreement, and 2 days of trial and error to correct it after the fact when I first got out boat in the water. I’d avoid that process if possible.
Thus, I’d strongly request 17p enertia for that 350 Verado. Second, I also really think that engine mount is going to be too low in the water, resulting in the issues mentioned above (too much drag). Due to boat similarities, I’d request (politely insist ) to start out with what Two Tone is switching too above. His changes sound much more apporpriate for that particular boat and motor.
