I do think I need to prop it out right - I am confirming the RPM range on the engine and think it is 4500 - 5500. With my current prop, I am on the low end of that. WOT should have me at 5,500.

The side shot of the hull shows about 4" - 6" draft, but being a v-hull, of course it is actually deeper. Take the back shot - the scupper is showing about 4" draft. The picture of the stern below the engine is 11" draft. Both are measured. This is without anyone on the boat, but with nearly a full tank of gas, cooler and gear for two people. Honestly, I am and always have been very impressed by how shallow this boat drafts for a v-hull.

when I get stuck on a sand bar with my v186 I usually have to get out of the boat to push it off as its the center of the hull that is dragging not the stern. If I use a push pole to try to get loose I just rotate around the center and can't get loose. OTOH, when I get out she usually floats right off, just need to hang on and be ready to get back in. That V in front sure makes for a nice smooth ride as it cuts the waves. They are still popular down there for a reason.

I am easily pleased, plus anytime you can walk the banks drinking cold beer slaying carp it is a good day.If it involves my rod and something wet, I'm in.
