You never had him as passenger?!

I have an XR2 on my P20 (200HP) running a Laser II 22 pitch prop. Bolted straight to the transome can trim all the way up flat out and its completley stable on the river. Taz also complains of Chine walking I would try a Laser II prop.

Submitted this thread when i brought my p20
http://www.boatmadforum.co.uk/showth...ighlight=props

I like to wakeboard and ski behind mine as well though and the Laser seems to be a good alround prop.

Played with loads of Props on a phantom 16 and a Yamaha 90 HP.

Took ages to find the right one ended up with a Ballistic raised the engine right up too. These gave us max top speed but wouldnt pull a medium sized bloke out of the water on a wakeboard.

If you want speed Burty seems to be the man. But not sure if your Yamaha will rev and provide the same sort of speeds. When we chnaged the yamaha on the Phantom 16 to a Suzuki V4 100HP the boat handles and rides completly differently to the 90 Yamaha. It actually goes faster (just) but feeel way more stable at speed and rides more horizontal. Therefore what ever setup burty has may well be compleely different to your own simply because the engines are complety different.

Hi,

the LaserII is an Inboard prop. right? You drive it on an Outboard and it works good

I have had a pair of 5degree wedges between engine and lift...I took them to the trash...now the boat runs better.

The next step will be moving the tank to the stern and reducing the last millimeter of play in steering

I'll give feedback about that modification

A LazerII is an OB prop, the Mirage is the sterndrive model and has a larger blade area.
