    took the ski out today

    First time taking the ski after getting everything back together and dealing with the battery issue. Went riding with my friend eric (08SHO, a new member), it was a really nice day to ride, almost everywhere we went was like glass.

    I ran a 69.9 GPSed with L-Temp 69/68, E-Temp 68/67, with all the mods in my sig and the RPM was at 8100, I guess a new prop is next in line on the mod list.

    Well...
    You are right on the money in rpm's. Now you need to keep the rpm's steady and increase your speed. A prop would not be my next choice because it will just decrease your rpm's. You need some further mods before going to a bigger prop. I would think about a wedge next, gutting the water box and going to a thru hull exhaust, then an XS intercooler and/or supercharger wheel. The exhaust, intercooler and wheel should increase your rpm's so you can run a bigger prop = same rpm's but more speed. Everyone has an opinion so get some more feedback.
