Yes that was my boat at Holley's. To answer your questions.
I feel like I can still get the bow plenty high in choppy water, I am in the 3rd hole down and the cav plate looks to be about .5" above the bottom of the hull in the middle. I can trim up way more without porpoising now, with the motor up a bit and the different prop. I am just using the bolts, I figure if I had a jackplate it would just be on bolts. The run with the new prop and with motor up was in the river. Normally I wouldn't change more than one thing at a time but it only took me a couple minutes and I could just swap back if I didn't like it. The boat feels much more nimble and is up out of the water more. I'm pretty happy, but am still waiting on my mini tach, and I'm curious to see what you would get with the 13p.
I ran the boat earlier in the day Sun with my wife (so me 230#, wife 115#, wife boat stuff, and full cooler) this was before raising the motor and while running a factory alum 15p. I ran from the Overstreet bridge through East Bay behind Tyndall all the way to Pier 98 to get gas and get a piece of chicken.........But I realized I forgot my wallet in my truck DOH!. This run was calm at the beginning but the wind got up and ended up running in white caps most of the second half going and the first half coming back. The boat REALLY handled it well, I got a bit of very minimal spray twice the whole time and it was pretty damn choppy, and I was running the boat pretty hard. So for that run in total I figured 44.5 miles which is straight there and straight back, a very conservative estimate considering the running around we did in creeks and such. When I stopped to fuel up on the way home it took 5.8 gal! I was really surprised especially since it was so rough. Super happy with this boat so far.
