    ? 29 Tempest

    Has anyone had any success with a 29 Tempest? I have re-powered with a strong 3.2 Merc and am having trouble locating a prop thqa is even close to enough for it. I can not fully utilize the power it has now until I get the LU noseconed but I need to locate a good prop for it sometime. I should get the nosecone installed soon. So far Im running a 27 Tempest to 85 and letting off of it to keep it under 85. 6400 rpm at 85.5 and just cruising I need to get the rpm down.

    If you can turn a worked 29 Tempest, that Gambler will fly. My 27 Tempest is the fastest prop on my Intimidator.

    I ran a 28 worked by mercury on my 2100 with a 225 opti. I was bumping the limiter at 76 to 77 mph. My fastest was a stock trophy 79.1 bumping the limiter
