115 optimax props


I have a 18 ft starcraft with a new 115 optimax I'm running a stainless steel 13.25 X 19. Have to trim up to plane out fully do I reprop or invest trim tabs or jack plate. I'm running at Max rpms as soon as I hit trim button and plane out 48 mph gps I'm open for suggestions

I'd go with trim tabs first. thye can have a huge impact.

Then i'd put on the jack plate.

Either of these things can be done with reasonable cost, probably less than a new prop.

If you need the new prop, i'd look in ebay first...

Are you having porposing problems? If not theres no need for trim tabs. I would get a bigger pitched prop and also that is more aggressive then your current one.

No porpusing problems at all define aggressive prop
