    Well, I can finally get around to posting this...

    1989 Ranger 350V
    1989 Mercury 150 XR4
    23p Powertech 3blade

    5600 RPMs at 61.5 GPS with a full gas tank and T load bymyself - throw another guy in there and it falls to about 57-59

    Once I add a jackplate I expect another 1-2 mph.

    Jackplate: None
    Prop: Trophy plus 25 -2 big plugs, 2 small plugs

    Boat: 1988 Ranger 363V
    Motor: 1988 Mercury 175 Black Max
    Jackplate: N/A
    Prop: Mercury Lazer II 23P
    Setting to Pad: Need to check this...
    Top GPS Speed: 66.1 MPH w/ myself, light load and 1/2 tank of gas (9 gallons)
    Average GPS Speed: 62.4 w/ full tournament load, 2 anglers and full fuel load (36 gallons)

    Notes: Boat has run great since purchase back in '88; once tried a 24P Protester prop, but only gained ~0.4 MPH... just not worth the investment, IMHO.

    2003 225HPDI
    2004 520SVX
    2 full tanks
    way too much gear and rods!
    3' on the Bobs Hydro-plate
    My 250lb fat a**

    5600RPM's----->70MPH GPS

    Im thinking thats pretty good?

    The day before with 2 - 1/4 tanks and going with the chop I hit 71.4mph (speed record for the boat) All this with a stock/dinged 25T1. What do you think?

    Boat: 2005 Ranger 519
    Motor: 2005 Mercury 200 Optimax
    Jackplate: 6" T & H Manual
    Prop: 25" Tempest Plus
    Top GPS Speed: 70.44
    Average speed: 68 GPS

    I am considering going to a hydraulic jackplate for river fishing. This boat is fast enough for me. If I get a bigger garage someday, I will move up to a Z20 for more room. Like you, I have too much stuff! But, I love this boat!
