How you all doing tonight? I bought a boat last summer and I'm worried about it b/c it will 7k at WOT. Its a 305 mercruiser with an alpha 1 outdrive. I have only ran it to 7 once trying to see if the prop had the right pitch. Well obviously its doesn't!!! Max rpm should be around 5400, i normally cruise around 3200. My question is which way do I need to go with the prop to get the rpm to come down and how will that affect the performace of the boat. I mean it gets on plane pretty good. Its a 22ft thompson carrera, cuddy cabin. What are your opinions on this?
