3.0 is a very solid engine. What you give up is torque vs. the 4.3 or V8. You can always switch to a 4 blade prop for quicker hole shot and hold place at slower speeds.

Thanks for the tip. Figuring I got the boat to 45mph with the 3-blade, how much speed reduction would there be with 4-blade?

I got another tip to switch to a 4-blade prop. I should probably invest in one of those regardless. Again, I feel the price was pretty good on this, even if I have to size up the engine in a couple years (local estimates I got were <$2K). Kids are 7, 9, & 12. Got a few years before the oldest challenges the boat I think. Glad I found this forum.
