Re: Recommend gear ratio

For whatever it's worth I run the same prop and about the same HP ,I run a 2.88 Stinger Gear drive in a 15' Air Ranger and its a real hot rod.
It turns lots o RPM 6200 to be exact and burns fuel but she can get up and run son. It's like a really fast bulldozer!LOL!

Re: 355 sbc?

I had a 355 SBC crate engine on my 15x8 and it did just fine.

The boat seems about right for the market but I'd see if 10.5 would buy it.

Looks like a old panther.
