Default 32P Spinelli Star prop, 4 blade

Ok so last fall I found a used 32P Spinelli Star and traded one of my 32P Bravos.
Put the new wheel on for yesterday’s Keuka Fun Run. I love the prop.
Had a full tank of gas and two very very large guys in the boat with me and hit 87GPS.
This is not a Spinelli made special for my Boat so I am sold and pulling the trigger on a custom Spinelli for her!

That will put you 2+ times over the speed limit.

Let me know if you need bail money!

The motor runs like it is stock, absolutely no issues. I think that has more to do with who installed the system then the ProCharger itself. Jason Kunkel at Kunkel Auto & Marine is fantastic to deal with and knows the setup inside and out.
The boat will run 86 GPS any day (full tank and 4 people) and I have hit 88 GPS once by myself.
