    What is the top speed you guys are seeing with a basic E18 with the 115hp Merc?

      with the factory prop I hit 41 mph (GPS) at about 5800 rpm at WOT, running light (one passenger), very little gear. Just replaced the prop with a Powertech SCD4, 13x16, and I am now at 6000 RPM and 39 MPH similarly loaded (as expected). Running with a few hundred more pounds of flesh and gear and I am at 5800 and 38 MPH. The prop is a great improvement in terms of ventilation and low speed planing.

        Just over 40mph with myself and my brother in the boat, plenty fast enough for me 🤣

            41 with one person (210'ish) and about 13 gallons of fuel - on a semi smooth portion of the Delaware River.
