Does anyone have a Beavertail Micro or East Cape Glide with a Suzuki DF30 OR DF30A? What top MPH are you getting, what prop do you run, and at what rpm?

I seem to be hitting around 23 knots max (like 26.5 mph). I figured I would be hitting around 25-26 knots max. I run a powertech REB3 10 pitch at about 5600-5700 RPM

That thread is what had me interested. I am at about 5500 rpm with the REB3 10 pitch. Not sure if I can go up in RPM and get more speed. I think for MPH im maxed.

I have a glide, do you have tabs on your skiff? I get best top speed jacked almost all the way up little bit of tabs and a little trim out.

I do have tabs but top speed is with no tabs. I do not have a jack plate. What speed are you seeing not jacked up vs jacked up?

I have not tried that, I will hopefully get out this weekend and I'll see what it'll do.
