I’ve got an East Cape Fury with a 60 Etec. What prop are you all using who have this combo? I’m getting about 31-32 mph top end solo. Maybe 30 mph top end with 2 x 200 pound anglers...at best. Current prop is a 3 blade with some decent cupping...no clue on the size/pitch.

One nice thing is I can run super skinny...prop never ventilates. But would love a little better performance. Not sure if what to stand to gain is worth losing some shallow running capabilities.

Let me know your thoughts! Thanks in advance for the info!

Unfortunately that seems to be about the typical speed with a 60 etec on a fury. 30-32 mph is right on par. I just repowered my fury last week with a new 90 etec. I am still playing with props but his 40mph today with a 19p viper. I had to put the tabs down more which slowed me down to 38.5 but the holeshot is great still. I have a 21p on the way. I'll see how that goes. I had a 60 etec previously on it.

I have run my original Suz prop, PowerTech prop and just picked up, installed and sea trialed my Jack Foreman prop. Without a doubt the Jack Foreman 3bl - 12.5" x 14xxx cup prop has exceeded all the rest. I was in the marsh in skinny water yesterday and could get a hole shot and get on top in 1/2 boat length. No comparison to the other props I have run. On top and going across the bay, I ran 5100-5200 rpms with SOG of 30. I had plenty of throttle left but this seemed to be the sweet spot. I will admit I lost a couple of mpg on the top end but running 30 and fishing where I do, I don't need those couple of mph. This is the best performing prop for my EC Fury w/a Suz 60.
