    Shout out to Mark's High Performance Propeller, Inc.!

    I've been fighting to get my Xpress H51 right, and sent my prop to Mark for repair and add cup...Boy, oh boy...Mark did an OUTSTANDING JOB! I now have a boat intead of a floating turd...The improvement is outstanding, boat is as it's supposed to be...Anything else that I plan to have done with motor height, and adding a jack plate is just Lagniappe! Prop before 40 gps, 5500 rpms, splash line at drivers seat...any time there it would start to porpoise...Now, this evening 43 gps tops, 42 gps cruise all day, 5700 rpms, water pressure is 15 psi @ WOT, boat handles great, and NO BOUNCING! Boat before was a 38 mph cruise at best...now I'm looking at 42 easy cruising, splash line is between me and transom...
    Mark you did an outstanding job on my Stilletto 15 pitch!

    Now full disclosure, boat will porpoise if one trims it past the point of no return.
    I plan to add a 6" vance, raise motor to what it will allow, and stick a micro power pole on port side.
    Life is good!

    I have used many different prop guys over the years.... Mark is the best, fastest and fair priced I have used.... All my friends will agree.

    I had a box my turbo 1 came in...Mark says to pack with plenty of news paper, any box you have, and to be sure to include the work order sheet in the box...You have to remove your hub kit, my prop was pressed in so that did not matter on mine.

    see work order section for instructions.

    I've used Mark in the past and his work is awesome! Turn around time was quick and I'm on the west coast.

    Good luck!

    I'll need to send mine in this winter. Anybody know if the blueprint cost includes minor repair, or would that be in addition to any repair cost? Mine's not missing chunks or anything, but the leading edge is a little rough from sand or small gravel at the ramp.
