Hi All

Finally got into the water today and took My Father-in-Law out for a run. Here is the YOUTUBE link.

Hello Chris,
I caught a quick glimpse of your video a while ago. However, I've been tangled up with work and now I have time to respond.
Youtube is such a wonderful tool for us to use, to show other members things just like you took the trouble to post... THANK YOU!

I can't recall if your 50hp has trim and tilt or not?
If not, are you running your SJ on the second tilt pin position? I am hoping to get a "benchmark" after we have mounted Paul's 3 cyl 65hp to his SJ.

Are you able provide info' such as prop pitch, diameter, No of blades, Aluminium, S/S or Bronze. and RPM @ WOT, if known?
If pitch & dia are not ledgeable, Part No will do and I can work it out from there.

I know the 65hp has a different gear ratio to yours. Your input will give me a clue as to whether the prop that came with his motor will be OK for starters or potentially suitable for the long term as well.

Hi Mercman

Glad you liked the movie, I want to get one from "in" the boat next. It was a bit hard to do that day.

OK, No i don't have PTT (Power Tilt and Trim) and i have it set in position 1. When i first bought the boat they had it in Position 2 but i felt that it was just a bit too trimmed out. Also worth a note i have the extension piece on the Transom so that may make a difference??

Prop Details are as follows

48 61818144 13p

I know the 13 Pitch bit but the rest is just numbers to me. Its an Aluminum 3 blade prop.

And sorry but i don't have RPM. Want to get it some time as i have no idea what range the motor goes in other than sound.

Hope this has helped.

Thanks Chris,
The information you have provided will enable us to be pretty much "on the money" as far as set-up goes, even before we launch Paul's SJ.
Yes, I did remember  your transom had been built up

I also recall your 13" drags you out on a single ski... I'll will now check the pitch of the prop that came with Paul's 65hp to see the direction we may need to take, if any change at all.

I'm looking forward to seeing your next movie. We will all be able live the moment - out on your boat - with you! Cool

Good work Chris.
