I wouldn't spend that kind of money on something stock. If you run some weight, and have a bunch of people, you will want something better. Contact Karl at www.boarditup.com and he can help make a good suggestion for your boat.
yeah, what Darin says. If I was to get another prop, I'd get one with a pitch set for a boat heavily weighted down. With that boat.. it's pretty easy to get a lot of weight in it since you are already starting at 1800 lbs. Add a few big boys and a cooler.. you get up there pretty quick.
Thanks for the help. I talked to Karl at boarditup today, good guy and very helpfull.
I may go the upgrade since it's a backup and maybe we'll grow into it. We'll use it full time if/when we do and have the stock one for now. In the meantime I have something to use if I clip the bottom.
