Re: crazy...jay martin propellers......just crazy


Well, in "waves" - I assume you're talking the type that makes things a little "rough". In that case you'll probably trim down a little to settle the boat down and you'll still have plenty, so I wouldn't worry in that respect.....but doesn't hurt to have insurance.

I'd set that puppy to run best and keep 12# minimum and everything else will fall in line.

Have fun with the set-up, buddy! emoticon

Don't ya just hate a slick lake. If she did that good for ya on a slick calm then you will pick up some R's/mph's on a chop.
Thanks for all the kind words, As for the decal...sorry....they never hold up for long...
