Something is off. You should be seeing speeds in the low 60's with that setup. Check to see if you're firing on all 6 cylinders. What kind of gear case is on the boat? Do you have low water pickups?? Most 21' Mates with a Merc 200 will run low to mid 60's..

Thanks for the reply. I am running it today with the SRX prop. I will post new numbers. I thought 20 percent slip was pretty high...

I will see if my wife can snap a pic of it from the dock so you can see how it's running on the water.

Any thoughts on the foam removal in the bow and under the floor?

Thanks again

Sorry I've been away for a bit. Yes I did check compression. It was even and over 105 but under 112 Cold. The engine had good power for a 175, and ran like new.
