  1. If memory serves me correctly Gramps said for me to start with a 13p Hustler from Turning Point..Then again he may have said 12p..

    What do yall think?

    Engine: 40hp TLDI Tohatsu with a jack plate

    Boat: SUV with center console steering, two batteries, trolling motor, poling platform, etc.

  3. I got the 10.75x12.

    Should I break in the engine with the stock prop or is ok to go ahead and put the Hustler on?

    I'd use the Hustler....and follow owners manual regarding outboard break-in procedure.
  5. That's probably what I will do. Man this break in procedure is gonna be boring. Haha
  6. Well I've seen 5700-5800 mph on my analog Tohatsu tach with the 12p and my cavitation plate around the 4" mark. As for MPH I hit a max of 33.4mph with 2 people, full tank of gas (12 gallons) and my fishing gear in the boat. I would like to try a 13p just too see how it does. I dont carry much in my boat.

    I really haven't got to play with it too much just because of the break in procedure.
