Still searching for the best version for me.
RED version was sub par performance
SCD version is closer, 17 too much pitch. Sent propeller to have it repitched n balanced. Will see after it arrives with modifications...

I run a 3 blade 14 pitch on my HB Guide with an F70. Gets up great, spins to 6100 and tops out at 36 mph wot. Can also run at 5000 rpm at around 26 and burn 3.5 gph. It’s not a PowerTech though

I think the prop is ok now as it's supposed to be a 13" diameter x 15" pitch n runs good. No slippage at wot n trimmed.....
Ran the prop on friends flat 20'×6' n it turned 7000 rpm. That same flat with 17" red pt 5000+

That sounds good but when loaded 35/37 lil enemic for me. My 25 on spear did nearly as well!
What speeds are you looking for? A flat bottom boat isn’t a speed demon to begin with. There’s such a thing as “hull speed” which is a speed threshold that when met you will actually begin to see speed decrease with more horsepower due to weight and resistance.
