Will be out tomorrow in the green 18. Daughter is in town for a visit. Need to swap the Spectras/trailers sometime soon. Also gotta run the Campbell after I get the prop shined up this week.

Nice to have an open lake with no traffic today.... empty channel. no crowds at the ramp.... gotta love living here.

What pitch are you at? I picked up a Merc 115 I am going to be putting on my pontoon, and was thinking about starting with a 13".

Depending on the size of your toon, a 13" should be a good prop. We have a 26 tritoon, and the 11 was too little, the 15 was too much, the 13 is great. It gets about 28-29 on GPS.

It was at a 13 and we went to a 15 and it brought the rpm down a little more speed the 13 was better or the rpm but I like to go fast lol and my pontoon is considerably light so the 15 works perfect for what I wanted

Drop to a 13 and I bet you'll see over 20. :D
Getting 27 with my 15 I was getting 23 or 24 with 13 but my Rpm a little low I wonder how I can raise my rpm but keep my speed?

Heading down pretty soon.... daughter just woke up and working on the son to get him outta bed. They had "Too much fun" last night. Probably head to the channel since its blowing a bit out there right now.

Gonna shoot for noon to be on the lake.

Mine is long shaft and my guess would be about 300 lbs maybe a little more
