Re: Proper prop size for 37 DC with 440's

Wow that is all great info. I used to use Herring blue props to tune go fast boats to find that extra MPH. Livorsi came out with a prop slip gauge and that helped allot but as I mentioned in a different post I know how to not be a total noob but going from a fuel injected performance boat to resurre...

Proper prop size for 37 DC with 440's

I have 78 37DC with 440's. I purchased as a project and am trying to find the correct prop size. She has 19x19 currently. I haven't had her in the water yet but just checking to see if we are propped correctly.

Re: Water out of spark plugs hole.

I think I'm too the point I've poured my mic of MMO and Diesel into every cylinder and let it sit for a week. Either the engines are stuck or I can't get enough leverage laying on my side between the block and the hull to move them. I think at this point I am not gaining any ground wasting days gues...

Re: Water out of spark plugs hole.
