Both. It will increase your mpg and possibly speed. You will definitely get more torque and will find a good cruise speed between 4200-4500. Way better low end torque.

WOW to the new 4 blade prop ! finally made the run this weekend from Davies to SCI. I got 2.0-2.3 mpg, 30 mph, 4,500-4,800 RPM, 3 guys loaded with 50# ice, 100 gallon of gas.

Note, I did not fill up the 68 gallon bait tank at all.

Summer is coming and this boat is ready to kill some tuna ! 211.6 hours

This is how I flush my engine after every trip to show how much I care for the engine. I run with hose connection first for 5 minutes with engine off then I run with the engine on and submerged until the water is warm.

Hey Tom, what kind of truck are you using to tow your Parker? Looks like an F150 in one of your pics, is it the eco boost 3.5? And how do you like it?

Old truck was F150 5.0L, new truck is a Raptor with 3.5 Ecoboost. 3.5 EcoBoost is a beast and I think it gives you plenty more torque over v8. Raptor suspension is not good for towing a boat but I take the 3.5 over my V8 anytime.

I am going from memory, seat was $1,100 and the Seaspension pedestal was another $1,100. I bought both from West Coast Marine.

Bump for new photos of the hull finish. Got a new polisher and first coat of rubbing compound on , polish and wax is next.

Dam, almost as good as factory finish.
What polisher did you purchase and are you still happy with it and the results?

Dual action rotary form Harbor Freight for around $65 and use their orange color foam pads(they have two that look the same but buy the one with better review). Use NO7 rubbing compound then No7 Polishing compound then Meguiar's M205 then Meguiar's 105 then two coats of Meguiars's Flagship paste wax. I apply Meguiar's liquid detailer before every trip to make clean up easy after.

only use one pad per product and you can skip compound if the hull is not too bad
