Looks awesome Pete! Love the interior. I am using Boatcote products too, so I'll have to remember your experience with the clear coat when I finally get to that stage.

I found the lake on Google Maps. It is long and narrow. It really does look remote which makes it my kind of lake. We certainly don't have many like that here anymore. Here is the link:

Thought I would post a slip graph of my current prop which shows some very average performance which is why I am going to change it
The prop I am running is a 12 x 15 supercup with 10 deg aft rake 3 blades with 1.14:1 gear ratio
as the graph shows it is not really planing till 2700 engine rpm,
which is a bit fast for the learner skiers .
So my aim is plane earlier and cure porpoise above 5600 rpm, and better slip figures.
So I have changed gear ratio to 1.03:1 and a 12 x 12 cupped prop with 6 deg aft rake and 4 blades .
fingers crossed :roll: I shall post results

tested prop all good except above 4000 rpm where it just slips, did every thing else I wanted so cant tell if it cured the porpoising ,anyway prop shop says they can tweak that.

Something doesn't seem quite right,
Did you get WOT with either prop?
Your graph ends at 5400rpm, but where did you experience actual WOT?
Your second prop, you say it did everything you wanted, but,,,,,,,prop shop can fix it.
Fix what?
Fix the porpoising, or fix the slip?

The slip on the second prop makes no sense, because as speed goes up, the prop area needed goes down. (somewhat)
you added the 4th blade in this case and you say slip went up. Im not buying it without better data.

How were both props measured for size? The same prop shop measured both, with the same equipment?
Or, did you use different prop, with different prop shop, with different equipment, with different technician?
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:
