Boat is 14' long. Alpha gen2 (I have to see what the ratio is) Guessing the weight to be in the 1200 pound range (help here too please) I am going to weigh it soon. Engine 120 (3.0) Mercruiser. 20 gallons fuel. I was thinking a hHigh-5 by Merc.
Please help me out.
Thank

I might suggest a Turbo Fusion 4. Are those the self contained K-planes? Are they 110's or 150's ?

The planes are K PLANES, They are model 110. They have the ram built in. There is a 3" hole in the transom to facilitate the ram. They came with a small well built pump for each side. I paid $1200. They were new. I got them in Ft Pierce Florida at the Marine Connection. They had four there. I would bet the others are still there if you are looking for a set. I think they are the coolest.
Thanks for the prop advice.

Forgot to mention the gear ratio is 2:40. From what I could gather either a 22 or 23 HIGH 5 would do it. What do you think??
