05 175 Merc Opti on my 1850 SF and thought it would fly.  Max rpm is 5000,

  Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance...Pat."

99 175 Evinrude Propshaft is 9" below the pad. 42 mph @ 4400 rpm(speedo)  
  "Not sure about the propshaft to pad measurements (this is  
  all new to me) I measured roughly from the bottom of the  
  keel? to approx. centerline of propshaft. My WOT rpm is  
  way low...s/b 5800 rpm. Need to find some solutions or may  
  have bad tach reading.  Any suggestions?"

     1850 Sportfish "Cruised from Yellowknife to Wildbread Bay (197 miles one

03 Crestliner 17" prop, Eagle Ultra Classic, Minnkota 65 AP.   Randy - WI
     Fishhawk 1750 "Having porpoising problems currently.  Goes back to   
     80 Yamaha  Crestliner for problem analysis.  Dealer only propped it to   
          4 Stroke run at 5300 rpm. Motor is rated to run 5000-6000.  
  Top speed is 38.  Very nice boat! Tons of room and storage."  
      Updated 8/6/03..... "Crestliner changed the "HOOK" in the boat. They did a   
  great job. The boat planes out fine and I can now trim it up  
  to where the prop comes out of the water at full throttle.  
  If anyone has a better prop suggestion, please e-mail me."  
71 Crestliner 15" OMC prop. 38 mph @ 5500 rpm.   Jackjaw56 - MN
     Buccaneer "My transom is completely rotted out.  I need to find someone  
     115 Johnson who can possibly rebuild the transom and add some youth  
  to this good ol' runabout.  Any help you all may have would  
  be greatly appreciated."  
91 Crestliner 14" x 17" OMC prop.  35 mph @ 5300 rpm (speedo).  Dennis - MI
     Viking 1750 "I had been running a 13.25 x 17 and it would get maybe  
     115 Johnson 40 mph when the fuel was low and I was in the boat by   
  myself.  I was under the impression that this boat should be  
  in the 45 mph range.  
  Can anyone advise of another prop tht may bring  
  this up to its maximum efficiency in speed.  The 14 x 17   
  comes out of the hole nicely at full throttle and allows you to   
  trim motor fully in one motion, but sacrifices top end speed.  
  The 13.25 x 17 had better top end.  Can anyone provide  
  feedback as to any manufacturer or pitch that may provide  
  the mph this boat is capable of.  Would appreciate  
  your replies."

     1800 Pro MotorGuide TM. 45 mph @ 5400 rpm.   
     115 Evinrude "Noticed Miguel has a 1750, 1997 Crestliner, this prop was  
  suggested to my dealer after having trouble turning a 21"   
  Renegade. I run two hefty guys with full tackle, no jackplate,   
  was wondering if one might help me a little. Would like to   
  hear comments from similar setups with a 115 Evinrude and  
  how much jackplate actually helped. My 115 is a '96, 60  
  degree motor. Sorry if I didn't supply enough specs but never  
  really thought about tweaking her until now. Just trusted  
  dealer for best setup."

     Tournament Pro Optima, MotorGuide Four 37# TM. 43 mph @ 4900 rpm  PHOTO
   115 Evinrude SPL (gps). "Fastest speed was achieved while run very low fuel.  
  Relatively flat water and little wind. I believe I'll pick up a little  
  more once my prop is tweaked.  I'll adjust the pitch down to  
  19" and remove some cup. The Raker is definitely the way to   
  go, but this 'rude can't turn it at a higher rpm. I would like to   
  run @ approx. 5200 rpms. I'll get my prop back 2/22/01 and   
  re-test and record height from pad."

00 Crestliner 21" Trophy, 6" Detwiler, Pinpoint 7520, Minnkota PD50,   Miksup - AZ
     1750 Sportfish 55 mph @ 5500 rpm (gps). "Achieved this performance after  
     150 Merc Opti much trial and error in Minnesota before moving to Arizona  
  this January.  I also installed all Gaffrig gauges including water  
  pressure, to replace cheap Faria gauges.  I am going to raise  
  engine a little more this spring to see if speed will increase  
  without blowout.  Have also installed SeaStar Pro hydraulic  
  steering.  I believe I am very close to as good as it gets with  
  a 1750 SF.  Will updated after moving engine up."

   115 Johnson FS "In May 2001 B&WB magazine profiled my boat, except  PHOTO
     with the 90 hp Johnson with the 13.25 x 19" SS prop. They  
   Updated 2/17/02 ... were turning 4900 @ 42 mph. I had a 14 x 17 aluminum  
  and was only getting about 38-39 mph @ 5300. I decided   
  to go with the same prop (different manufacturer - Cabelas/  
  Michigan - 13.25 x 19) and am happy I changed.  The bite  
  is MUCH better, control is better, I got more top end, bow  
  lift is where it should be and I also eliminated an annoying  
  porpoising problem.  My holeshot is also better, due to the   
  vented prop, and better bite.  The 4900-5000 @ 44 mph  
  I'm currently getting is with 2 people, full T load (Bass),   
  full gas tank and full livewell, with the motor up one hole   
  from bottom.  All speeds were GPS.  Since the range is  
  4500-5500 and according to the specs it develops the   
  115 hp right at 4800-4900, I'm very satisfied.  My local  
  prop shop says I may get a little more out of it if I go to   
  a 13.25 x 17 Turbo, but I'm not sure it's worth it, as I'm   
  satisfied with it as it is.  It it ain't broke, don't fix it....LOL"
