    Hi all,

    I take delivery of a new 119c next week. I didn't order a jack plate or power poles so I was wondering what I can expect out of the boat stock? It is a dual console.

    Thank you

    Note: just me, 165 lbs, around 3/4 full in both tanks, slick water, quite a bit of gear. Haven't really learned how to get it just right, first time owning a boat this big.

    Looking at getting a 6" JP and a 175vmax hpdi series 2 thats new on the shipping crate. Think I can expect 10-12 more mph with a light load?

    96ranger492vs: I could use the information about the prop if it isn't too much trouble. I am running about 10 mph less than you presently for some reason.
