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.

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.
