    Stainless props

    Be carefull with stainless if you keep your boat in the water. According to mechanics I trust they will cause significantly more drive corrosion should you choose to keep it in the water. Trailer/Lift I assume would be fine.

    I have B6's and I do a little better on performance than that. With 5 guys and 1/2 fuel on a good sea I've seen just over 32 Knots at about 3800 RPM. I may change to C5's.

    I have the same set up and I was considering stainless steel props. What size do you have on yours?

    Good to learn of your experience, it's great to be happy with the choice you made. What size CC is it?

    Great ride

    Fished the WMO last week at OC, Md.
    Monday it was the roughest I had ever been in inside the 100 mile range, certainly glad I was on a Carolina. She rode great @19 knts and able to get a smooth trough ride in on 6-8 ftrs @ 3-4 secs., faster than boats much larger. Same for thursday, seas 5-6 ft, running 25knts and smooth, I am impressed, as this past week was my third fishing trip on her since purchasing in late June.

    No fish for the scales.
