Lots of variables to consider. But I was running a 40TLDI on an SUV17 with an Atlas Microjacker

- Turning Points Hustler 11p at 5700rpm, killer holeshot, not much difference from 4700-5700 in speed, top speed 32mph solo

- Turning Points Hustler 13p w/ custom cup at 5500rpm, slower holeshot, top end 34mph solo, but ran ~5" above the hull bottom without issue.

- Stock Prop, motor mounted on transom, decent hole shot, 5750rpm, 36mph solo. Once the jackplate came in, stocker would blow out a ~1" above hull bottom in chop or quicker turns.

I have a 2012 Tohatsu 50TLDI tiller turning a Powertech REB3R13P on a Whipray (Classic). Could move to a 12P (or even as low as an 11P). It has a Microjacker, so I had the prop tips cupped to keep it hooked up at high engine lift positions.

I have the 40 TLDI and run a tunnel hull boat. With stock 12 Pitch prop I ran 32mph, but engine would blow out on turns and when trimmed up.

Switched to a power tec 4 blade 10P cupped prop and dropped down to 27mph, but absolutley no blowouts and can trim the motor up all the way. I lose water for the pick engine cooler pick up before I lose grip from the prop. I can also go wide open, and turn the motor as hard as it will go and it will not blow out.
