    The "Official What Are Your Numbers" Post!!

    Okay.. someone had the great idea (might have been LarsenNET?) at the Bull Shoals Rally that we should have a post where everyone could post their numbers and setup. So, with that in mind, we need to make sure it is in a consistent format so that all the information needed is put on there.

    Here is a recommended format for information that is useful in dealing with your boat setup. The thought is that these numbers will be useful to others with new boats in getting their rigs setup.

    My recommendation would be to copy/paste the below format into your post and just change what is filled in to your specs:

    EXAMPLE:

    Boat: 2005 Ranger XYZ
    Motor: 2005 Mercury XXX
    Jackplate: Rite Hite 6"
    Prop: Mercury Tempest 27", one plug removed
    Setting to Pad: 3 1/2" below pad
    Top GPS Speed: 72.3 mph with full tanks, medium load
    Average GPS Speed: 70.1 with full tourney load
    RPMs: 6000
    Notes: Prop worked by Mr. XXX; removed plug from prop for better holeshot

    If there is anything else that should be included, send me an IM and let me know.

    If not, then let's see your numbers!
