Guess I got a slow one
Bought a 05 RXP in late Feb broke it in nice only a couple of WOT bursts per outing, 22 hours later and Riva Stage I minus the wedge took it to the river yesterday was windy but water was perfect nice little chop
about 90 degrees air, water was 84 i got a 67.8 and a 67.3 @ 7800
Stock I was averaging 65s
do I need a impeller tweak (solas 14-19R)
Block offs and sponsons are on the way

I agree,it may very well be that prop.Mine,(when not overfilled with oil) does 8000-8100 rpm's and consistent 66-68 mph stock.Right now it is still overfilled because I have no way currently to extract it,and I am too lazy to take it to the shop and make them do it.I bought a little siphon pump with an aquarium pump size hose,but it won't fit down the damn dipstick tube.Where do you find a hose small enough to fit in there?
By the way Meirvin,going to PK next weekend,Sunday through Tuesday.

meirvin... lots of things to check and do to get it up to speed. make sure ur wear ring is in mint condition... make sure your oil level is perfect, and you need your prop to be repitched if the oil and wear ring are perfect...
who did the 10 hour service and what was done at it?

Send me your prop and let me pitch it. I'll get your RPM's up to 8100 and then you will be flying
PM me for details.

meirvin, I had no trouble whatsoever getting the aquarium hose at Petsmart. Jerry's prop bends are the best..... Terry
