It took most of the summer, but I finally have my Minx running and handling more like it should. Settled with a 23p mirage, 4900 rpm and 66 mph.

Photo is while out for a fall ride on Lake Erie.

If the power is is a 350 MAG, 66 is an excellent top end.

Not stock power. Has a 383 stoker @375 hp. Still needs some fine tuning but much better than the 58 it was at a year ago when I bought it. Main lesson learned us this hull does not like a prop with stern lift.

Sounds like a good combo.
I owned an 87 Minx and rebuilt the 270HP/350 Mag with 300HP Tempest cam. She would top out at 65 or so running real light.

Is this the boat that was for sale on the west coast about a year and a half ago ?

Yes, it was in British Columbia. I bought it last fall.
