We were going to get you a SS prop so no use in settling for an aluminum one now, since you started with a steel prop. Let me also know the brand and model of the props they gave you to try.
Tom,
I’m done for now, not kidding, my prop guy has seen enough of me and I don’t have the cash for a stainless right now, I think I’m okay, I can get her up to 6000 and more by trimming the motor way up just before she lets go, she feels real good at a cruising speed of 25, thanks for all your help, oh, I ended up with a 13 3/4 X 13 Michigan Wheel.

Oh, one more thing, Jacques, I love my P19, everything about it, I have a guy here in Michigan that wants me to build him one, he's willing to pay but I do not have it in me to build for someone else, I have my own list I want to build before I can't, so if you know someone who would willing and can do a professional job please let me know.
Joe, no problem with the prop. Glad you got it dialed in with the 13 3/4 x 13. Have a great summer of fishing.

Hi Joe,

I had to look up your neck of the woods; Fair Haven MI on Google. So you are around Lake St. Clair ? If you are I have to say, what an amazing area especially around Anchor Bay, Goose Bay and Clay Township. All those channels, the hundreds of Islands and access to the Great Lakes. Boating paradise :D

It's a great area Marc, Only an hour away from the big city where I work and when I'm out in the boat it feels like I'm hundreds of miles away, I don't think a lot of people realize how vast it really is, well because it's nothing but Lakes and rivers! ha,
Funny thing is I'll be up your way next week on one of the best ice fishing lakes in the world! Lake Simcoe.

Thanks

Indeed, when I visited Lake Huron a few years ago...those are like oceans actually and they can get pretty nasty real fast. Plan is to cruise the Rideau Canal and on to Kingston for her maiden voyage (that can be done by canoe inside of 2 weeks) and maybe Toronto and your area eventually. You have to respects those lakes, safety is paramount so one small trip at a time - and close to shore :lol: Those docking areas by your houses 8) - nothing remotely like that at all in my part of the world. Love it.

Have fun on the ice Joe ! The Kawartha region is beautiful. Walleye I guess ?

When I first launched the P19 2 years ago my seats were supposed to be temporary, well I finally got around to replacing them with something that complements the boat!
