Looks to be slightly over propped. The manufacture usually has a rpm range. 14x16 may get you in the range.

Just make sure you are actually getting full throttle throw on the engine.

Great report! I followed your initial build, saw your boat outside your shop (and others) and was inspired to build mine. Glad you finally got her wet! More photos would be awesome! Did you use the OB you bought way back, or did you use a newer model? Oh, did I mention the need for photos...

If I hadn't gone down the path I did with my gutter system, my skiff would be on the water by now. Looking good!

Beautiful day on the Columbia!
I am a newbie with the prop stuff. The plate says 5600 WOT
Last week was 42 mph at 5800 14 x 15 - exceeded factory WOT
Today 42 mph at 5100 WOT 14 x17 greater pitch and more weight this week. Is this where we are supposed to be?
Pictures were taken by others and are to be emailed to us, when I get a copy I will post.
Felt good and I am in love with the boat. Still not finished but Springers (great eating in my opinion) are around the corner and I am hungry.
Put in at Chinook landing and ran up the Gorge. Did real good in the wind waves upstream. Came back down and anchored in the current for awhile. This boat is great anchoring in the Columbia current, will continue to test it and learn its abilities. For sure we will use in the fall for upriver brights, will be a great boat for that fishery.

I am thinking of tinting the side and back windows, do they have stuff that sticks to the windows and works?

Son David says maybe we should run the length of the lower Columbia next week just for kicks. Sounds like good kicks to me.

Seems like at 5200 top end you could be losing some mid range tourqe that is useful running slower, up swell, and in bad weather.

As far as the tint goes it can be kind of a trick to put it on correctly.  You could check with an auto tint guy. Should stay on good and have lots of tints to choose from.

Our quick hatch gutter system. Drains over into the fish box. Hopefully keep the bilge clean and dry. Not as nice as Arne K's system but quicker.

Thanks Steve, for all that you have done for this community.

Each of our boats is better because of the information here.  A true "Open Source" boat design!
