29 FEVER Props

Dear Bob:

Q. I have a 2004 29′ Fountain Fever with twin 377 Mercury Racing Blue Scorpion engines. I am currently running Bravo 1 propellers that I had “lab finished.” The result is that I now have too much prop slip. At the peak rpm of 5,200, my boat can achieve 79 mph. I was considering the Bravo 1 FS 32″ pitch propeller. Is that a good option?

Thanks,

1 oil since break-in completion. The engine
