Welcome aboard

It doesnít sound like you did a sea test so I would wait to see how it performs as is before making any changes.

That's a huge motor for that boat. I don't think you need to upgrade the performance at all, it will already go way faster than you want it to. For prop, let us know what's on it now, but it probably came with a 19 or 21 pitch, depending on drive ratio. Do you know if your drive is a 1.47 or 1.98? Does your boat have smart tabs?

Sea test is a generic term to test the boat on the water. I hope the boat is in good condition as more than one person did as you only to find serious issue latter.

Guess youíll find out in the spring.

If the engine still has the plastic cowl cover on top the carb the engine and drive serial numbers are on it and you can look up the drive to find its gear ratio.

I can't determine drive ratio by a picture of the stern drive. You may need to do some detective work with a flashlight and look for either 1.47 or 1.98 stamped somewhere on the drive. The numbers will be small font so it will take some looking to find.
At this point, outdrive ratio isn't critical. Take a RPM check at WOT and work from there. My guess is you will be going in excess of 50mph so be ready.
