2016 18 TRX 200 mercury pro xs
25 tempest plus
6" zlock plate
2 5/16 ptp
2 guys ( about 450lbs) 35 gallons gas and empty live wells and normal fishing load. Motor has about 9hrs now. Water and air temp in 60s. Prop on its way to Mark for a B&B
2016 TRX 20 Patriot:With break-in over and about 25hrs on the engine but handicaped by the 250 lb. driver she rose up on a slight breeze down wind and hit 76.8, my best so far and I'm thrilled with that since she handles it like a piece of cake compared to my old 20 HP. It's not always about speed in perfect conditions, it's how will she handle the imperfect conditons and this boat exceeds my greatest expectations. Last year I lost a tourney on Champlain because I couldn't get to my spots......that won't happen again!!!! TY Triton.
I have a 2015 trx 189. 150 mercury four stroke. I just put a 23 tempest plus on it and hit a new record 60.2 mph at 5900 rpm. Up from 57mph with a 21p tempest plus at just over 6000 rpm.
It has a 6 inch manual jack plate, but not sure what the ptp measurement is. It's set wherever the previous owner had it. Also has 2 8 foot power poles and was loaded fairly heavy with half a tank of gas and just me in it (175lbs)
i feel like there is more in it. Holeshot is still great and maybe better than with the 21p prop. I'm going to send the prop to mark for a little work and see if i can get to 62-63 with a hydraulic 8 inch plate.
Damn, you guys are fast! I'm probably the slowest one here
